CONGRATULATIONS TO MADEIRA HIGH SCHOOL’S PERSONAL FINANCE CHALLENGE TEAM!
Thanks to Fidelity Investments and to everyone that participated in the Ohio Personal Finance Challenge State Finals.
You will be thrilled to know that Madeira High School placed 2nd at Nationals today! The final challenge was Ohio vs. Texas and after 30 questions it came down to one tie-breaker question and Texas buzzed in first to win.
Both teams knew the answer, Texas was just a little quicker on the buzzer! We were told as soon as Texas won, the Madeira students went over immediately to congratulate the Texas team and they were complimented on their sportsmanship by the National Council of Economic Education. This was the closest challenge at Nationals and the first time they needed a tie-breaker question to win.
Each student as well as the teacher, received $500 cash. “I’ve never touched a $100 bill before”, said two of the students. The boys are very excited and had a great experience in Kansas City.
Thanks again for your support, we value Fidelity’s partnership!
