Service 1st Federal Credit Union hosted the Annual Financial Reality Fair at Danville Area High School today, Wednesday, March 11.
The High School Financial Reality Fair (Fair) is designed to place students in real-life situations where they select a career, are provided with an entry level salary and challenged to make decisions while remaining within budget. Students were required to visit booths at the Fair and purchase necessities, such as housing, clothing, food and transportation. As in real life, non-essential options were also presented, such as entertainment, internet, and cable. Before leaving the Fair, students met with financial counselors from Service 1st to review their decisions. Approximately 300 students participated in this mock budget experience. Twenty students from Milton Area High School also participated in the event.
