Brookwood students win personal finance challenge, again - BROOKWOOD | For the third year in a row, Brookwood High School’s financial banking and services team won the 2013 Alabama Personal Finance Challenge. Jackie Emplaincourt, the team’s finance career tech teacher, said she’s really excited for her students. The team also won sixth place in the 2013 National Personal Finance Challenge. In the initial round of the state competition, Brookwood competed against 268 teams. Twenty-eight teams advanced to the final round of the competition held at the University of Alabama on April 23. At the finals, individual team members had to take three rounds of tests covering on checking accounts, interest rates, credit cards and financial laws like the Truth in Lending Act. The two schools that scored the highest on the tests were Brookwood High and Eufala High. The final two teams then went head-to-head in a financial quiz bowl. Brookwood defeated Eufala in the quiz bowl 13-1. “The challenge applies the excitement of an athletic competition and academic excellence and encourages students to apply their personal financial knowledge and work in teams,” said Johnnie Aycock, executive director of the Alabama Council on Economic Education, which sponsored the competition. “We are very proud of these outstanding students and schools,” he said. “Through this type of academic competition and focus on personal finance and economics, students will be better prepared as employees, consumers, community leaders and citizens, which is exactly what the mission of the Alabama Council on Economic Education is all about.” At the national competition, 20 states sent teams to St. Louis, to compete on May 2. Wells Fargo paid for Brookwood’s team to go to the championship. Emplaincourt said the top two national teams were from Tennessee and California. Tennessee won the national competition. She said this was the first year that Brookwood got ranked in the national competition. “This is something that gets the kids motivated,” she said, “They prepare for it all semester. It’s exciting.” 20261
