Illinois Capitol Challenge (ICC) is offered each fall, matching state legislators and to schools within their legislative district. Schools and teachers are identified by Econ IL and invited to select up to five student teams ("Super Teams") to partner with their local legislator. Throughout the competition, legislative sponsors are encouraged to visit their schools to learn how the students manage their SMG portfolios.

At the end of the session, teams in the top three ranks are awarded certificates, medals and cash prizes. The top team is also awarded a trip to Springfield to be recognized by their legislative sponsor. The second and third place teams are recognized at an in-school award ceremony.

Teachers or legislators with any questions should contact Econ Illinois.
