Bellows Free Academy Fairfax finished second place in the 2013 Vermont Treasury Cup Challenge held in Montpelier by the State Treasurer’s Office on May 3rd. Team members were each presented a trophy by State Treasurer Beth Pearce.
This one-day academic competition gives teachers a way to challenge their students in a fun game-show-style event. High School student teams competed to determine which had the best grasp of economics and personal finance knowledge and skills.
High School Math Teacher John Tague coached the BFA team in preparation for 2013 Championship.
Students greatly enjoyed this exciting event which highlights the importance of personal financial literacy and understanding of economics. Congratulations to the BFA team!
