Brandeis HS takes first place in Jr. Duel

A GT leadership team from Brandeis HS took first place, and earned $1,000 for their school, in the San Antonio CPA Society’s “Jr. Duel in Ol’ San Antonio” personal finance competition.

The contest is designed to stimulate, teach, reinforce, and provide long-term knowledge and the use of practical personal finance skills for high school students.

To advance to the finals, students submitted a written case study. During the finals, teams presented to a panel of community judges.

A team from Business Careers HS placed third and won $500 for their school. A Clark HS team also advanced to the final round.
