EcoChallenge is a general knowledge type of contest which has turned into a tradition for the students of Economic High School Arad. This contest is held every year on the 5th of October in order to highlight the International Education Day when teachers around the world are celebrated. This special day is a tribute brought to teachers and to their contribution in the creation and development of society’s culture, values and morals. The International Education Day was celebrated for the first time in 1994 by UNESCO.
EcoChallenge is organized yearly by our educational counsellor (Misses Dorina Danila) in collaboration with the representatives of the Students’ Council.
The rules of the contest are simple: every class is represented by its best student who has to answer to a number of twenty general knowledge questions. There are two categories: one for students belonging to grades 9th and 10th and the other for students belonging to grades 11th and 12th. There is also a time limit of half an hour. The student with the best score is declared the winner. In case of equality, there are some extra questions to be asked in order to make the difference and truly choose the best student.
