NATIONAL FINANCIAL CAPABILITY CHALLENGE
The U.S. Department of the Treasury and the U.S. Department of Education have teamed up to launch the National Financial Capability Challenge, an awards program designed to increase the financial knowledge and capability of high school aged youth across the United States so they can take control over their financial futures.
Over 80,000 students across the country completed the Challenge, which consisted of a voluntary online exam designed to illustrate the relevance of financial capability, allow students to demonstrate what they have learned, and assess their financial knowledge.
Eleven BHS business students scored in the top 20th percentile nationwide. They are: Berenice Almanza, Dakota Buss, Kayla Cody, Travis Eubanks, Janeal Hill, Bethany Kempf, Ben Noojin, Hailee Phelps, Kay van Schie, Andrew Venneman, and Aaron Vogel.
