Hamilton students score in top quarter in Financial Literacy Challenge

Hamilton High School students in Brenda Savic’s Personal Finance course participated in the National Financial Literacy Challenge, and many of them scored in the top 25th percentile among students throughout the country who participated.

Hamilton students who will receive certificates from the U.S. Department of the Treasury in honor of their accomplishment are Michael Beaulieu, Emily Gabel, Erin Geszvain, Tyler Gilmore, Kaitlyn Gramz, Bryan Kristensen, Cameron Lange, Alexander Lutze, Steven Radcliffe, Alana Strait, Clayton Van Der Linden, Natasha Veal and Daniel Westbrook.

The challenge was developed by the Department of the Treasury in consultation with economists and the Jump$tart Coalition for Personal Financial Literacy, Junior Achievement USA, the National Council on Economic Education and the National Endowment for Financial Education. It was created to help students learn about the nation’s financial system, including the need for saving and investing, using credit wisely, avoiding fraud and other financial topics.
