H&R Block Dollars & Sense is an educational initiative dedicated to increasing teens’ financial literacy. Through engagement with educators, parents and high school students, the program provides educational resources, giving teens the financial foundation they need to succeed after graduation. Free to high school teachers and home school educators, the H&R Block Budget Challenge is a teacher-tested, online simulation tool that replicates real-world budgeting and personal finance decision-making. By simulating an adult’s financial life – paying bills, investing in retirement, managing loans and more – students take a personal finance “road test” and can compete for $3 million in scholarships and classroom grants.
H&R Block is committed to increasing teens’ financial fitness and has partnered with DECA to sponsor the Personal Financial Literacy Event.
The company will provide a total of $2,500 in cash awards to the top ten competitors at the International Career Development Conference.FIND OUT MORE
