Personal Finance Team Wins 3rd at Regionals!

LtoR Jayden Garrett, Alex Lutz, Logan Lembke
Mrs. Brenda Budler entered her Personal Finance students into an online statewide competition sponsored by the Nebraska Council on Economic Education. This year, one team made up of Logan Lembke, Logan Gimeson and Jayden Garrett placed in the top five for the western Nebraska region. With the honors of placing in the top 5 out of 76 teams, they were invited to compete at the regional level in Kearney, NE on April 19th. Due to one member of the team not being able to attend, a substitute was made with Alex Lutz. This team competed against four other schools in the western region. 

Each team was given a hypothetical family scenario.  They had two hours to create a PowerPoint presentation on their financial recommendations for the family.  Each team had 10 minutes to present their financial plan to a panel of expert judges. The Chadron team ended up in 3rd place receiving a team trophy and $50 cash prize each.
