Students in Ms. Horvath's Career & Financial Management class recently participated in The Payback Challenge, sponsored by Next Gen Personal Finance (NGPF). This annual scholarship contest helps students earn money for their education, while developing an understanding of what college life is like. Through this interactive game, students were able to make real-time and realistic decisions to help manage their student debt. After playing the game, students were tasked with responding to this reflective prompt: How has the game changed your impression of what college life will be like in the 21st century? Some students were even entered to win scholarship money from NGPF.
