Attention NH High School Teachers!

Originally created in celebration of NH Jump$tart Coalition’s 10th Anniversary, the Get 10 Virtual Quest™ challenges high school students to find the correct answers to “10 Questions Every Good Consumer Should Know”. Students access the Get 10 Virtual Quest online and are prompted to answer questions with clues provided by sponsors who are especially interested in helping students build a foundation for sound financial decisions. Last year over 500 teens from 76 NH high schools participated. Of those, 278 successfully answered the questions and were eligible to win an amazing prize – one of ten MacBooks! The student winners from last year were ecstatic. Parents shared how happy they were that the online scavenger hunt introduced some basic financial literacy topics to their children. In 2011, our goal is to reach over 1,000 students. This year we are giving away TEN Apple iPads (The amazing large, high-resolution LED-backlit display, multi-touch screen that isn’t just the best device of its kind, it’s a whole new kind of device!)
