Each year, the Nebraska Council on Economic Education conducts the Nebraska Finance Challenge. Schools are divided into three regions: Omaha, Lincoln and western Nebraska.

Students began the challenge by completing an individual online finance test. The teams with the highest combined scores on the online test advanced to the regional competition in their area.

The western Nebraska regional competition was held at UNK on Saturday,

April 19. Each team is given a hypothetical family scenario and then had two hours to create a PowerPoint presentation with their financial recommendations for the family.

Each team had 10 minutes to present their financial plan to a panel of judges. Students competed for the opportunity to advance to the national competition. Sutherland students Zach Blake, Calvin Carsten, Jayson Rezek, and Tyler Fear earned the right to advance by having the highest individual score of the 76 teams competing in the Western Nebraska region.

At the regional competition, they earned second place for their financial plan.
