Personal Finance Brings Personal Success!

(Submitted by Brenda Budler, Business and FCA Instructor at Chadron High School)

Chadron Personal Finance Teams place 4th and 20th out of 344 teams statewide!

You can't read the news without seeing why a fundamental understanding of economics and finance is so important to the future of our youth and our country. The Nebraska Economic Council puts out a Finance Challenge online each fall semester to support their mission by creating a fun incentive for students to take ownership of their education, their choices and their future.

Congratulations to the Chadron 1 Personal Finance Team of Jadyn McCartney, Greta Welch and Kiya Passero. They placed 4th out of 344 teams in the state of Nebraska.

The Chadron 3 team made up of Andrew Smith, Kyla Parish, Chandler Hageman and Kyle Baumann placed 20th out of 344 teams. Great representation of western Nebraska with these student winners!
