Sterling, Va. (February 4, 2015) – To help high school students learn to manage their money and become financially responsible adults, H&R Block has created an opportunity for high school students and educators nationwide to win $3 million in classroom grants, college scholarships and cash prizes through the H&R Block Budget Challenge. This online simulation tool replicates real-world budgeting and personal finance decision-making.
Potomac Falls High School is receiving two grants, totaling $7,500, from the H&R Block Budget Challenge for the exceptional work done in Kimberley Fieser-O’Donnell’s personal finance classes.
In addition, five Potomac Falls’ students (Riley Sanborn, Farhana Chowdhoury, Evy Koon, Kendra Giles and Thomas Otto) placed among the top 66 of more than 32,000 students participating in the program. Each earned a $20,000 scholarship for achieving high scores in the national competition.
