Tahoma High School students excel in financial literacy competition

Students from Tahoma High placed second in the team competition at the January 2014 Washington Financial Literacy Challenge.

The Challenge is designed to recognize students who demonstrate high levels of personal finance skills and reward teachers for outstanding practices in teaching personal finance.

Students participate in an online assessment of their financial knowledge and their performance is ranked against their peers.

The team from Tahoma that placed second was made up of William Lathrop, Ryan Myers, and Viviana Salazar-Delatore. Another team from Tahoma finishes fifth.

The challenge will be offered again in May so that students in second semester and yearlong courses have an opportunity to participate. Participation is free and information can be found financechallenge.org.

The challenge was underwritten by the Opus Foundation and the Washington Department of Financial Institutions.
