The Deputy Governor of the Bank of England, Charles Bean, presented them with the Challenge Trophy and a cheque for £10,000 for the school. Speaking at the presentation the Deputy Governor, who chaired the judging panel, said: "This year 284 teams took part in the competition and it is a great achievement to have made the final. We have enjoyed six excellent presentations today, all of which have demonstrated an impressive grasp of the key economic issues currently facing the MPC. I hope this experience has brought economics to life for the students and also demonstrated the uncertainty surrounding policy making.”
