Toombs State Champs

In early April, a team of 4 Toombs County High School seniors from Coach Brodnax's Economics class competed against 110 other teams of seniors from across the state in the first round of the Georgia Personal Finance Challenge.  The team of Hailey Barwick, Sadie Guin, Blake Hall, and Makenzie Sager scored well enough on their online knowledge test to be considered in the top 8 teams in the state and move into the state finals.  In the finals, each team was given a case study of a fictitious family.  Their task was to evaluate the financial situation and prepare a 4-minute presentation focusing on how this family could sustain or improve their current financial situation.  All of the presentations were performed live via zoom to a judging panel of 7 industry professionals on April 21st.  At the end of the presentations, the judges asked each team several questions about their financial advice for the case study.  Later that afternoon the results were announced live via zoom and the Toombs County team won 1st place and the honor of representing Georgia in the National Semifinals on May 6.  

Congratulations and good luck to our area seniors!
