Students from Hamilton Southeastern High School placed first in the Indiana Personal Finance
Challenge for high school students, offered by the Indiana Council for Economic Education. The winning team members
Beau Hart, Nick Iacobucci, Megan Meyers, and Matt Rittman competed against 315 other students from across the
state and were coached by their teacher, Mitchell Steckler. Team members answered questions about earning income,
protecting and insuring, using credit, buying goods and services, saving and financial investing. These students won the
right to represent Indiana at the National competition this coming May in St. Louis, Missouri.
The 2nd and 3rd placed teams in the Indiana Personal Finance Challenge were both coached by Richard Reid of Carmel
High School. The second placed team members included Robert Deaton, Kevin Mi, Joseph Philleo, and Alex Yu. The
third place team members included Sami Uzzama, Alice Wang, Christine Wang, and Michael Zhou.
Congrats to all of the participating students.
