Win Money for Prom
Prom is coming up quickly, and it's a great time to encourage your high school students to make good decisions with their money. Between the outfit, the accessories, and the transportation, students can spend a pretty penny on prom expenses.
Ramsey Personality Anthony ONeal is giving away $1,000 to one lucky high school student for their prom this year. The winning student will be given $1,000 to spend on prom-related expenses like tuxedo rental, dress rental, limo rental, flowers, pictures and more!
Your students can find out how to enter the giveaway by going to anthonyoneal.com/prom. The giveaway ends on Friday, March 10, and winners will be selected by March 31.
Anthony will be sharing life tips and fun ways to save money on prom on his social channels throughout February and March. It's a great way for your students to learn how to manage their money better and avoid making poor money decisions around prom this year. You can find him on social here:

In Intro to Business (BUS110), students are playing Monopoly to learn first-hand about economic systems. We start the first day playing "capitalism" Monopoly where the normal rules apply except you do not have to own all of one color before building.
The second day of play, students experience "socialism" Monopoly. In this version, students take their properties and money from the first day and divide it evenly among all players. All shared resources are paid to the government and not the individuals.
On the last day, "communism" Monopoly is played. Now students start with the amount of money the government says they need to play. The government owns all properties and the rules change a lot!
At the end of the three days of play, students will reflect on their experiences and what they have learned about economic systems.
