Poly High Econ Team Goes to Nationals

Poly High School teacher Dan Adler and several of his students will fly to New York City this month to compete in the National Economics Challenge.  The Poly team last month captured the California State Title for the Economic Challenge and placed among the nation’s top six schools.

Poly team members (and the colleges and universities they will attend upon graduation) are Nikesh Bhakta (UCLA),  Eric Brewster (Harvard), Sean Price (Lehigh) and Dillion Tellier (Wharton Business School).

The contest is sponsored by the Council for Economic Education.  The May 22 to 24 National Championship Finals will culminate in a heated, quick-paced oral quiz-bowl round.
