Economics Poster Contest

Each year, Indiana students in grades 1-12 are invited to submit an original drawing depicting an economic concept. The contest is held to stimulate interest in the fundamentals of our economic system and to encourage students to demonstrate their understanding of economics in a creative, interesting way.

Theme - "Economics in the Hoosier State!"
Understanding economics is helpful for making all sorts of decisions! Economics decisions affect the number and types of jobs available; provide goods and services that we want; and make Indiana a great place to live and work!

This year, in addition to highlighting the most artistic entries for each concept, we will recognize all entries that also illustrate the theme, "Economics in the Hoosier State," with a "Young Hoosier Economicst" certificate!
