Buy Smart Awards

Christopher has been shortlisted (5 out of 280 entrants in his age group) for the Qld govt. Buy Smart Awards for High School students. We are off to Parliament House in a couple of weeks for the announcement of the winners. There is a 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize, so 2 out of the 5 students will head home empty-handed; but we thought we’d go anyway.

For his Civics course last term, he had to come up with a creative presentation aimed at helping young people manage their finances. He produced a little video about budgeting to avoid ‘the debt monkey’. We didn’t even bother entering it in the competition, but his teacher was keen, so we decided we would, and apparently the judges thought it was pretty good too.

Watch this space.
