Borah took a heavy majority of the prizes at the April 26 Economic Summit, with a tie for Summit Champion.

Both Team Mongolia and Team Swaziland took home the trophy for overall champion.

Senior Natalie Willoughby, member of Team Swaziland, said her team did not expect to win the entire competition, despite its team winning last semester as Team North Korea.

Senior Ellie Webber from Team Mongolia said her group was able to summon different strengths from each member to score well on quizzes, design the table display and costumes, as well efficiently negotiate during the trading sessions.

Both Summit Champion teams are in AP micro/macroeconomics, meaning they competed in the EconSummit first semester. Each team claimed they relied on their experience and knowledge from the previous Summit to achieve a high rank.

One team, Team Jamaica, was not in an economy class and were not required to participate in EconSummit. Instead, the team attended for enjoyment because of the energetic and educational atmosphere. They wanted to emphasize the positive effects the Summit brought them.

Along with becoming Summit Champions, both Team Swaziland and Team Mongolia scored 100 percent on the geography test, with Mongolia also winning top costumes.

Both Team Jamaica and Team Bolivia were awarded top low-income country. Jamaica also received top table display, and Bolivia scored 100 percent on the geography test.

China was crowned top middle-income country and also scored 100 percent on the geography test.

Team Singapore and Team Netherlands shared the title of top high-income country.

Team Iraq and Team Senegal took two of the three awards for top table displays.

Special thanks to economics teachers Andy Ankeny, Chad Bleazard and Jason Willer.
