Introduction to Budget Challenge Webinar Series

Getting started using Budget Challenge® just got easier with our introductory webinars for teachers!

First-time teachers will get pointers on registering students, using teacher-only functionality, and pro-tips for incorporating the program into class curriculum. This one-hour webinar will get teachers oriented to save valuable start-up time and prevent reinventing the wheel.

This free and innovative program is best suited for high school classes (grades 9-12) in personal finance, economics, math, marketing, accounting, and family and consumer sciences.

Ease the transition to the real world for your students without the overhead of manual simulations. The Road Test for Personal Finance® does the repetitive work for you, so you can focus on content. It even helps with grading!

What is Budget Challenge?

Budget Challenge® is a personal finance simulation that teaches teens money management skills. During the 10-week competition, students receive virtual paychecks and bills in real-time and are challenged to build a budget and make financial decisions that help them learn how to pay bills on time, manage a credit card balance, and save money for retirement in a 401(k).

This year H&R Block® is sponsoring high school students to play for FREE and giving away college scholarships to students who excel in the simulation!

New teachers may register at hrbds.org and create a class for the spring simulations today!
