Radnor High School Students Take Top Honors in PennCFL Budget Game


Radnor High School students Trevor Antram, Cackie Martin and Audrey Collins recently finished in first, second and third place, respectively, in the Philadelphia division of the Pennsylvania Council on Financial Literacy (PennCFL) Budget Game. The students worked under the leadership of RHS teacher Chip Horner.

The Budget Game is a world-class, web-based budget simulation platform and curriculum that gives real-life scenarios of being a college student with a part-time job or recent graduate starting a full-time job. Game participants "live" on their own and make real-life decisions. Monthly budgets include spending choices for groceries, rent, cell phone, TV and internet plans. Students learn how to raise their credit score and create a savings plan. To win, students have to maximize their net worth and improve their credit score while maintaining a high quality of life. This program is sponsored by Bank of America.

PennCFL’s mission is to provide Pennsylvania’s K-12 students with economics, personal finance, and entrepreneurship skills that elevate their standard of living, quality of life, and professional success. To learn more about PennCFL, visit www.penncfl.org.
