Personal Finance Students Take the Payback Challenge

Personal Finance Students Take the Payback Challenge

Students are in the “driver’s seat” as they make realistic decisions to get to and through college. They had to figure out a way to keep debt manageable, maintain focus on their studies, make connections, and find happiness. With this game, they were also able to see the financial impact of their school choice, housing, and other college decisions. After playing, students had to prepare a 250 word essay or 2 minute video reflecting their experience and tying it in with the challenges we face today with Covid-19. Their response had to reflect how will their college decision-making change because of the pandemic. One student from Ms. Lavine’s Personal Finance classes will be entered into the Payback Challenge, which is a scholarship opportunity valued from $2,500-$1,000.
