Euro Challenge Competition

Congratulations to the Montclair High School Euro Challenge team which placed second among 117 high school teams from around the country in the national Euro Challenge competition yesterday, April 30.

The Euro Challenge is a program launched by the Delegation of the European Union to the United States in partnership with The Moody’s Foundation and with the Federal Reserve Bank of New York serving as program advisor.

The MHS team included five students: James Feinberg, Ben Weintraub, Miles Weddle, Hannah Melville, and Clara Devine-Golub. The team is advised by MHS faculty Jack Weber and Thomas Clifford.

As second place winners, each of the students won $1,000 and a trip to Washington, D.C. to meet with the Delegation of the EU to the US and to make their presentation, entitled “Europe A Creek,” (on French unemployment) to the staff of the French embassy.  This overnight trip will take place in June.

MHS has participated for many years and has placed highly in the past. First place this year went to Princeton HS, so NJ showed very well.

    This MUST be a misprint. Certainly only private school kids can complete at such a high level.

    Congrats to All the students, faculty, (volunteers, I see you Mr. Cliford!), and families. Your accomplishment is inspiring!!

    Keep up the good work.

    So, so pleased to see that Tom Clifford is still going strong; he was my sophomore English teacher back in 1983-84, and still one of the best teachers I ever had in the humanities.

    And congrats to the team!

    Looks like Penny hasn’t destroyed the intelligence of all of the MHS students yet. We must give her more time.
