Congratulations to the 2014 Baton Rouge team winners for winning the National Financial Literacy Championship in Hollywood, Florida!
For eight weeks in the spring, 20 high school students engaged in financial literacy classes covering the basics of saving, budgeting, credit, stock and mutual fund selection and asset allocation, while also constructing a $2,500 investment portfolio. The program culminated in an Investment Challenge where students defended their investment recommendations to a panel of judges. Congratulations to Lorin Crenshaw, program chairperson.
