Posted on January 5, 2021 | Filed under General News

Congratulations to the following students for their success in the 2020 Financial Literacy Challenge:
First Place – Christian Lussier
Second Place – Savannah Hunt
Third Place – Alexandra Heinle and Olivia Blakeslee (Tie)
Due to Covid-19, this year’s event was held virtually. A total of 23 students participated and each created a personal financial budget and investing plan appropriate for a recent college graduate. Students submitted their written plans in advance to the panel of judges who met virtually on December 19 to evaluate each plan according to the Certified Financial Analyst (CFA®) criteria for excellence in financial planning. Students winners were awarded a total of $5,000 in prizes and trophies. These top four finishers will enter the March 2021 CFA Collegiate Personal Financial Planning Competition in Pittsburgh. The Financial Literacy Challenge is hosted by the Bruce R. Thompson Center for Business and Economics. For more information, click here.
