Westborough High School students were victors at the debate competition held as part of the 2013 Boston International Economic Summit on Dec. 4.

The winning team, which beat 97 others, was made up of Ivan Truong, Adhithyan Krishnan and Maxwell Silverman. The debates focused on how best to improve the global economy.

The Summit marks the end of a semester-long program that teaches students the basics of international economics, global trade, political relations, and world geography.

“In today’s global economy, it’s vitally important to prepare students with experiences that really broaden their knowledge of issues facing countries around the globe," said Eduardo Garrido, director of Santander Universities US, one of the event's sponsors.

Other sponsors included the Challenger Foundation, Gillette Stadium and Patriot Place, the Massachusetts Council on Economic Education, and the International Economic Summit Institute at Boise State University.
