Students Learn Fiscal Responsibility

Students from Pittsburg High School spent some time with Financial Management and Entrepreneurship Agent, Kylie Ludwig, discussing how to begin managing your money at a young age. They played an activity called the Bean Game, where they were to work in groups to choose what was most important to them and their personal life. They were given 48 items to choose from, but only 20 beans. Items included housing and utilities, insurance, savings, food, transportation, and much more. The hard truth is that there will never be enough money to do what we want to do, so learning to invest your money in places that makes the most sense is a very important skill to have!
