Greensville County High School Qualifies for Statewide Economics and Personal Finance Competition


Greensville County High School will compete in The Governor’s Challenge in Economics and Personal Finance, a rigorous statewide competition to be held Wednesday, April 26th at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) in Richmond. 

The area high school was a high scorer in the Personal Finance division, and will test their knowledge against several other teams from across the state at the day-long competition.  Team members Summer Jones, Cassandra Robinson, Arianna Edwards, and Dawson Butler; taught by Corutney Moseley, earned an invitation to the championship round following an online competition conducted by the Virginia Council on Economic Education (VCEE) in association with the Office of Governor Terry McAuliffe.  VCEE is a nonprofit public-private partnership focused on enhancing economics and financial education in grades K-12.  Regional winners in each division and other high scoring teams were invited to participate in the “live” championship challenge, according to VCEE Executive Director Daniel Mortensen.

VCEE’s Mortensen explains that The Challenge brings classroom concepts to life for students.  “Learning about economics and how it relates to their lives helps students realize they already participate in the global economy,” Mortensen states.  “Applying these concepts leads to more informed buying and saving decisions on the part of students. They make better choices when planning for their future, including college and job choices.”

The Governor’s Challenge will take place in the VCU Student Commons, 907 Floyd Avenue in Richmond, beginning at 10am with championship rounds and awards beginning at 11:35am.

“We greatly appreciate the financial support provided by lead sponsor Capital One and the Virginia Credit Union,” said Mortensen.  “Without it the Challenge would not be possible.  We also greatly appreciate the teachers who make it possible for students to participate and the extra effort on their part.”
