Four Dallas International School students made it through to the second round of the Euro Challenge, a nationwide contest encouraging students to seek solutions to economic issues from a European perspective. Although the team did not make it through to the third round, their efforts were recognized, delivering a strong case to the judges with confidence and ease.
9th and 10th grade students, Pierrick Afopa, Eddy Silva, Saara Bidiwala and Chloe Serna, presented on the economic policies of Greece followed by a Q&A session where judges quizzed them further about the topic.
When asked how they felt about the experience, Saara Bidiwala shared, “Ce projet m’a permis de comprendre la complexité derrière la création de la loi et comment m’engager dans un dialogue pour essayer de résoudre les problèmes aux quels nous faisons face.” Chloe Serna added, “L’euro challenge a permit d’approfondir mes connaissances sur la politique fiscale en Grèce. Mais plus généralement, ce projet m’a permit de comprendre les coutumes politiques et culturelles grecques.” Congratulations to the talented DIS students who participated in this challenge!
