LCMR
Lower Cape May Region High School in Cape May, New Jersey has been awarded a total of $10,000 in grants through the H&R Block Budget Challenge — a teen financial literacy program that rewards high school classes for mastering real-world budgeting and personal finance decision-making. Lower Cape May Region High School is one of 15 winners nationwide.
The school has two teachers – Lee Pierce and Michael Wilson – teaching the course. They each won a grant during the fall simulations and Michael’s class has now won a $2,500 grant this spring. In addition to the school grants, one student, Taina Mercado, won a $20,000 scholarship by scoring in the top 67 students during the fall simulations.
The learn-by-doing educational approach of the H&R Block Budget Challenge allows students to experience activities like paying bills, managing expenses, saving money, investing in retirement, paying taxes and more in the safety of a classroom. The program was created to help address the need for more financial education in the classroom. Only 7 percent of high school students1 are financially literate and fewer than 30 percent2 of adults report being offered financial education at school or college. The state of New Jersey currently does not require a one-semester course in financial education to graduate.
“We’re honored to be among the top-performing schools in the country for the H&R Block Budget Challenge,” said Michael Wilson, teacher at Lower Cape May Region High School. “Financial literacy is important to the future success of our students and we’re thrilled there’s such a hands-on platform through which they can learn.”
The H&R Block Budget Challenge is free to high school teachers and home school educators3. Participants play classroom against classroom and student against student, competing for $3 million in grants, scholarships and cash prizes in the 2014/2015 school year.
