On April, 10 Fort Scott High School Seniors Jenna Grado, Braden Shelton, Tyler Martin, and Shaylee Terry competed in the Kansas Council for Economic Educations “Personal Finance Challenge.”
These students were among 18 other teams competing for the opportunity to represent Kansas at the National Completion in Lincoln Nebraska.
Students had to first complete a preliminary test. The top 20 teams in Kansas were then invited to Wichita State University to compete in the state championships. Once at the tournament, students competed in three individual and one team test.
While not qualifying for Nationals, the FSHS team was in the top five teams across the state.
This activity was part of the Personal Finance class taught by Bert Lewis at the High School.
