Volunteer Opportunities

Two Ways to Get Involved as a Volunteer!

Full Day Option (8 am to 4 pm)

The Idaho Council on Economic Education uses volunteers to serve as bankers or scorekeepers at the International Economic Summit competitions in December and April!  The Summit program is a regional competition for high school students who have been studying International trade and politics, and come together for a day long competition to see who can raise the standard of living the most for their country.

Typical duties are grading quizzes, awarding points for activities, issuing loans, and selling tariffs.

Event Calendar

An Hour Here & There

Each Summit Team is required to write a 150 word essay about a global economic issue and how they would solve it.  We use volunteers to help score these essays prior to summit day.   Judging essays is a simple process that takes only one hour of your time.  It takes place entirely online.  You are emailed a batch of essays in survey format.  You score them at your own pace using our scoring rubric.  If the team submitted a 1-minute video to illustrate their proposal, you get to grade those too!  They are usually very entertaining and fun to watch!
