2014 Case Study Information:
Top scoring student teams in the online Personal Finance Division of the Governorís Challenge who accept an invitation to participate in the statewide Championship on April 9, 2014, must:
The final Championship component of the Governorís Challenge takes place on April 9, 2014 at the VCU Commons in Richmond, VA from 10:00am to 2:30pm (registration and refreshments begin at 9:30am.) Student teams competing in the Personal Finance Division of this Challenge, will present their recommendations to a panel of judges in the morning. With only the judges in attendance, each team presentation is limited to five minutes, with five minutes of questions from the judges and a few minutes in the beginning for any set up. Feedback will be provided to each team. The scoring rubric is provided at the end of the Case Study document.
After lunch, based on the scores from the morning presentations, the top two teams will present their recommendations to the entire group of students and adults in attendance. Again, presentations will be limited to five minutes plus an additional five minutes for questions from the judges. The second team to present will not be in the room while the first team is presenting. From these two teams, one will be awarded first place and one second place in the state.
Technology will be available at the VCU Commons. It will be best for students to bring their presentation on a flash drive and use our computer and projection, but also good to bring their own laptop as a back if possible. Also, the top two teams who present in the final round based on the written and morning presentations will have an additional "twist" to consider and reflect on for 1/2 hour. They may want their laptops for Internet access and possibly adding another slide, although that isn't required.
For all high school students:
