Mr. Conaway will be forming a team of Haas Hall scholars (grades 9-12) to compete in the H&R Block Budget challenge with a scholarship opportunity to win $20,000 towards the college of your choice!
“The 2018 H&R Block Budget Challenge is open to legal residents of the fifty (50) United States and the District of Columbia, 14 years of age or older who are full time students in grades 9 through 12 attending a public or private high school.”
The competition gives you a paycheck, bills, and an online bill pay system to keep your bills paid. You will also take weekly quizzes over lessons provided. This should only take 10-15 minutes a day to login and maintain. You are graded on paying your bills on time and not running out of money all while saving a little in your 401k. Quizzes and daily log ins count too. Finally, like life, there will be some unexpected event that you will need to budget for along the way!
It is an individual competition as well as a team one, the best team wins a prize for the school. Serious players please.
