Next launch of the 8th edition of the "Generation €uro Students' Award" competition


Information and launch teleconference on Thursday 15 October at 2:30pm. Write to to subscribe.


For the eighth consecutive year, the Banque centrale du Luxembourg (BCL) is joining forces with the European Central Bank (ECB) and around ten other national central banks in the euro area to organise the Eurosystem's "Generation €uro Students' Award" school competition.

The "Generation €uro" competition is open to secondary school students aged 16 to 19 interested in economics. The competition is played in teams of three to five students supervised by a "coach" teacher. Any team can participate in English or French.

Due to the sanitary restrictions, this new edition will be organized fully in a virtual manner.

Once registered, teams will be able to take part in the first event, an online quiz with 30 questions that will be available until 22 November 2020 on the competition site. The best teams at the end of this event will qualify for the second event, in which the teams will have until 20 January 2021 to propose in writing a monetary policy decision on the basis of an analysis of the economic and monetary situation in the euro area. The top three teams from this second round will be called for the final in March 2021 (exact date to be confirmed), where they will have to explain to a jury of BCL experts the reasons for their new monetary policy decision.

All students taking part in the final of the "Generation €uro" competition will be awarded a prize and a certificate of achievement. Finally, the first team to reach the final will win a two-day trip to Frankfurt, if sanitary restrictions allow, to attend a European awards ceremony at the ECB alongside the winning teams from the other participating countries. 

An information and launch teleconference will be organized on Thursday 15 October at 2:30pm.

For organisational reasons, teachers and students interested in attending this meeting should register by sending an email to by 12 October at the latest. If you are unable to attend this meeting but are interested in receiving information on the organisation of the competition, please do not hesitate to write to the same address.
