The Omaha Branch partnered with the Nebraska Council of Economic Education to host the Nebraska Econ Challenge State Finals on April 22. As part of a new format for the competition, the teams of high school students worked against the clock to solve a backpack filled with economics challenges in order to decode a final secret message. Branch staff volunteered as game masters, and Omaha Branch Executive Nate Kauffman hosted the final quiz bowl showdown for the state championship. Congratulations to the division champions: Millard North High School and Lincoln High and the runner-up teams from Millard West and Thedford High School.
