The Idaho Council on Economic Education at Boise State University recently sent two undergraduate students along with five Kuna High School students to the International Economic Summit, a world-trade simulation held in Boston for high school students.

The program, developed and managed by the Idaho Council on Economic Education, hosts 10,000 students from 13 states, China and Mexico every year, helping them learn about world economy, personal finance and how to prepare for college and future careers.

Harvard University hosted the event this year, giving 60 U.S. students and 120 Chinese students the roles of economic advisers to 40 real countries to “help raise the standard of living.”

Boise State students Connor Stuckenholtz and Matt Moore attended the event, helping to manage the training and competition.

The Idaho Council on Economic Education is a nonprofit partnership between the business community and higher education formed in 1971 to promote economic and financial education to the youth of Idaho.
