High school teams compete at 'Finance and Investment Challenge Bowl'
RHINELANDER - Teams from five area high schools competed in the 7th annual Northwoods Finance and Investment Challenge Bowl at Nicolet College in Rhinelander on Wednesday. 

Students faced off in quiz challenges to test their knowledge in business and finance. 

The competition was a way to promote financial literacy and strategic learning. 

One senior said it would be a great accomplishment for her school if her team won. 

"We are not really a recognized DECA program and we don't have a lot of medals and trophies. Everybody would be proud of us if we won," said Three Lakes High School student, Pazeia Peterson.


Students competed for trophies, prizes, and the chance to compete at state on May 21.
