EN Once again, the Banque centrale du Luxembourg (BCL) is joining forces with 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 who are interested in economics. They will compete in teams of three to five students supervised by a "coach" teacher. Participation is possible in English or French.

Once registered, teams will be able to take part in the first event, an online quiz with 30 questions that will be open until 6pm on 26 November 2023 on the competition’s website The best teams at the end of this event will qualify for the second event, in which the teams will have until 6pm on 6 March 2024 to propose a monetary policy decision in writing based on an analysis of the economic situation and of the monetary and financial situation in the euro area. The top three teams from this second round will participate in the final in March or April 2024 (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, and will have the opportunity to complete a summer internship at the BCL.
