KEARNEY – Three Kearney High School students placed third in the Western Nebraska region and 17th overall in the statewide personal finance competition.

The students, sophomore Gus Fay, freshman Brandy Wroblewski and sophomore Jacob Sindt, qualified for the state competition in April.


The Nebraska Personal Finance Challenge was sponsored by the University of Nebraska at Kearney and the Nebraska Council on Economic Education. There were 226 teams in the high school division: 97 in Lincoln, 58 in Omaha and 111 in Western Nebraska.

The state finals will be held simultaneously, in person, in Lincoln, Omaha and Kearney, and will award $7,000 in prize money. The winning state team will compete in the national competition.

“The challenge helped students demonstrate their personal finance knowledge by connecting with other students across the state and measuring their scores and knowledge in an online competition,” said teacher Scott Steinbrook. “Helping students understand topics like budgeting, saving, investing, financing higher education and career exploration is such an important conversation to have with high school students to help prepare them for life after high school.”
