The power of the dollar
Congratulations to EHOVE Interactive Media Tech student Tiffany Caldwell (Bellevue HS) who recently placed in the top 20 % of competitors in the National Financial Capability Challenge. There were over 80,000 students nationwide who participated in the test.
The National Financial Capability Challenge is an awards program designed to increase the financial knowledge and capability of high school aged youth across the United States. It encourages educators to teach the basics of personal finance to their students by rewarding students, educators, schools, and states for their participation and their successes. Educators and top-scoring students receive award certificates, and schools and states with the highest participation rates earn special distinction.
Tiffany plans on furthering her education by going to college after EHOVE, and believes this award will be a great asset to add to her college application. “I participated in this challenge because I wanted to see where I stood compared to others with my financial background,” said Caldwell. “It will also be good on my resume, job and college applications.”
