Eleena Lee

Next Gen Personal Finance (NGPF), a nonprofit committed to ensuring that all students leave high school with the skills needed to thrive in an increasingly complex financial world, is pleased to announce that Eleena Lee, a senior at Erskine Academy, has received an Honorable Mention Award in their third annual PAYBACK Challenge.

Over 900 students from across the United States submitted essays earlier last fall after playing the award-winning college finance game, PAYBACK. Tim Ranzetta, co-founder of NGPF, states, “Over 200,000 students played PAYBACK during the contest period. It was great to see the impact this game had on students’ attitudes and actions as they decide on their educational path after high school.”

Each of the honorable mention winners will receive a $500 award from NGPF to be used for educational purposes.
