Oklahoma is one of 6 states where economic standards are not required to be implemented by school districts. The number of economic classes and teachers are shrinking each year. At the close of the 2018 school year there were eleven AP Economics and eighty-two high schools offering General Economics courses in Oklahoma out of 550 districts.
Wyandotte has offered Business class for 5 years at the insistence of high school principal Steve Buckingham.

This award program recognizes outstanding Oklahoma students and highlights the importance of an economic way of thinking. These students are chosen to represent their schools, who have demonstrated strong economic and financial principles and how it applies in their lives.
