The Michigan Council on Economic Education uses the multiplier effect to reach students through their teachers. We invest in teachers who, in turn, reach thousands of students over the course of their career. We offer professional development in economics and personal finance both face to face and through on demand platforms.
Our premier student competitions include the annual Michigan Economics Challenge sponsored by Amerisure Insurance and the Personal Finance Challenge sponsored by Michigan Credit Unions.
Each competition begins with a qualifying round held online at your convenience January through March. The top scoring teams are invited to the state finals to compete for thousands of dollars worth of scholarships and an all expense paid trip to the national finals!
The Council for Economic Education is pleased to offer professional development webinars for teachers nationwide. The webinars cover multiple topics on how to integrate personal finance and economics in the classroom and create a fun learning experience for your students.
When you attend the webinar(s), you will leave with relevant lessons, resources and tools that can be implemented the next day. Also, Michigan teachers earn one Continuing Education Unit (SCECH) for each webinar. If you are interested, but cannot attend the live webinar, please register to get access to the archived version.
An evening to celebrate the economic education achievements of Michigan teachers and students who have excelled in the classroom and those individuals and organizations whose efforts have expanded the role of MCEE, economic education, and financial empowerment throughout the state.
