…AND THE WINNER IS?
Congratulations to the first place team,
With the most questions answered correctly, the team took home first place medals and prizes after winning the first annual Econ IL Young Professionals Group Trivia Challenge. The competition consisted of economic and personal finance questions in the areas of entertainment, world history, current events and additional questions taken from Econ Illinois' Personal Finance Challenge and Economics Challenge - spring competitions for high school students.
On November 5th, Representatives from COUNTRY Financial visited with teacher Julie Wollenberg and 6th grade student Kate from Thomas Middle School in Arlington Heights. Kate was one of twelve winning Illinois students in this year’s Economic Concepts Poster Contest. COUNTRY Financial has made a two-year commitment to sponsor the program which educates first through eighth grade students about economic concepts. Students participate in the contest by creating an illustration of a concept.
