Yale University won the 15th annual national College Fed Challenge—a competition that encourages students to learn about the U.S. economy, monetary policymaking, and the role of the Federal Reserve System. The finals were held in the Board Room at the Board of Governors as the capstone to five district competitions held around the country. The other national finalists were second place: Rutgers University, with honorable mentions for Princeton University, University of Wisconsin-Madison, and Virginia Commonwealth University.
