Personal Finance Challenge State Champions Announced!
The top eight teams from high schools across North Carolina competed in the final round of the NCCEE’s Personal Finance Challenge State Championship. 2020 proved to be a challenging year but educators and students across the board remained committed to finishing what they started with gusto! Although the landscape changed from the previous format of a written exam and head-to-head Quiz Bowls to an online platform, they battled for the top spots in two divisions – Middle and High school. Now the high school State Champions head to Nationals!
Congratulations to the following winners:
State Champions – The Burlington School, team The Great Bank of Frank, Sharon Brooks
2nd Place – West Lake Middle, team Cerebo Grande, Regina Watkins
3rd Place – West Lake Middle, team Bracydios, Regina Watkins
State Champions – Ardrey Kell High, team PPC Warriors II, Dawn Patterson
2nd Place – Ardrey Kell High, team Keynesian Devils, Dawn Patterson
