About the Event
The event, featuring an MCQ round and a second final Case Study round for top 20 highest scoring students, aimed to assess not just the participants' theoretical knowledge but their ability to apply economic principles in real-life scenarios too.
The response to the Olympiad was nothing short of remarkable, with an astonishing 1100+ registrations in addition to about 80,000 impressions pouring in from various regions of India. This surge in participation underscores the growing interest and enthusiasm among high school students for economics as a subject and solidifies Ashoka university's reputation as a hub for quality education in economics. We had collaborations with Ashoka’s Outreach and Admissions Team, Lodha Genius Programme and Young Scholars Programme. We also did a collaborative post with Ashoka University’s social media page, like LinkedIn and Instagram, which helped with our reach as well.
The winner was awarded a 100% scholarship to Ashoka University's prestigious Young Scholars Programme (Summer School Program), worth ~ Rs. 50,000) and a total cash prize pool of Rs 5000 for the top 3 winners. As an added bonus, the winner also gained access to exclusive mentorship sessions with the university's peer mentors, providing invaluable insights and guidance to nurture their passion for economics. The event's resounding success reinforces the importance of fostering and recognizing young talent in the field of economics."
