Lights, Camera, Budget Contest


The Georgia Council on Economic Education is running the Lights, Camera, Budget contest for grades 6-12! This is a fun opportunity for both you and your students, plus they will learn some personal finance along the way. 

WHAT IS IT? In the game, students take on the exciting role of movie producer, making important decisions about everything from actors and directors to shooting locations and marketing strategy. Their job is to analyze the risks and rewards of each choice and its impact on the movie budget, with the goal of creating a blockbuster movie that doesn’t bust the bank.

One student in grades 6-8 and one student in grades 9-12 will be randomly chosen the week of December 7th and those two students, along with their teachers, will each receive an e-mailed Amazon gift card worth $100! 

Teachers, the more of your students that enter, the better your odds! This is a WIN-WIN!
