May 23, 2017 -- Students in Cathy Arvantides’ career and financial management class at Marcellus High School participated in a national online financial skills simulation during the spring semester – and came in second out of 2,418 teams competing nationally.
 
Through exposure to real-life personal finance situations, the H&R Block Budget Challenge equips teens with the skills, habits and confidence to manage their money wisely.
 
Throughout the 10 weeks of the challenge, the online simulation tool replicates real-world budgeting and personal finance decision-making. By simulating an adult’s financial life – paying bills, investing in retirement, managing loans and more – students take a personal finance “road test.” This learn-by-doing educational approach allows high school students to make real-world mistakes without facing real-world consequences.
 
“It was an impressive finish considering the contest culminated during spring break week, and the students carried it through to the end, recess or no recess,” Mrs. Arvantides said.

In addition, the Marcellus students were recognized by H&R Block for their ongoing high engagement and financial mastery in the program. As a reward, the company sent each student a $25 prepaid gift card so they could “start putting their money management skills to use in the real world.”
