The Reserve Bank of New Zealand – Te Pūtea Matua is excited to announce the 2022 Monetary Policy Challenge.
Webinar for students
This year we will be running a webinar on 25 August at 10:00-11:00am. The live stream will be made available via our website. An exclusive panel for secondary schools featuring Chief Economist Paul Conway, Director of Financial Markets Vanessa Rayner, and other RBNZ staff will discuss the August Monetary Policy Statement. They will also talk about what it is like working at the RBNZ and how they embarked on a career in economics. There will be a Q&A session for students to ask questions. Students can pre-submit questions to firstname.lastname@example.org and also ask questions on the day.
Following the webinar, teams of students will be invited to answer a question and submit a video presentation. The question will be released after the webinar on our website. Submissions close 8 September at 5:00pm. While we encourage you to watch the webinar, it is not a condition of entry to the challenge. Students may also only watch the webinar and not participate in the challenge.
First place winners will spend the day in Wellington at the Reserve Bank of New Zealand. Here they will have lunch with the Governor, Adrian Orr, and meet with other employees of RBNZ. Students will get to experience what it is like working at the RBNZ for a day.
