We are pleased to announce the winners of the 2020 QETA and UQ Student Economics Competition.

The joint first-place winners are as follows:

Year 11

  • Pat Trappett - Brisbane Grammar School
  • Sam Bizzell - Brisbane Grammar School
  • William Staib - Brisbane Grammar School
  • Naveen Hingorani - Cannon Hill Anglican College
  • Luke Palmer - Villanova College

Year 12

  • Tim Rainbird - Brisbane Grammar School
  • Jemima Noller - Corinda SHS
  • Shumeng (Maggie) Ding - IES College

In total, over 1600 students participated in the competition from 33 schools, resulting in an outstanding number of students achieving equal first-, second- and third-place.

While we are unable to host a presentation ceremony this year, the first-place winners outlined above will receive cash prizes and an acknowledgement for their achievements. All second- and third-place winners in the competition will also receive a certificate for their hard work.

We hope that students enjoyed entering the competition and found it rewarding to test themselves against their peers. We encourage all students to continue their curiosity via UQ's online resource Economics Explored.

Please note, QETA and UQ will be in touch with the winning schools to arrange student prizes. In the meantime, we would like to take this opportunity to thank Queensland schools and economics teachers for their continued support of this competition.

Kind regards,
