Gary Aronhalt and Fox Beachler, both 4th-grade students at Broad Ford Elementary School, were two of 20 winners in the state of Maryland in the annual “A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words” 2021 poster contest sponsored by the Maryland Council of Economic Education (MCEE). Each student received a $50 prize, medal, certificate, and copy of each winning poster for the school.
The Maryland Council on Economic Education sponsors an annual poster contest for Maryland students in grades 1 through 8 to help teachers stimulate interest in learning basic economic and personal finance concepts. Students are given the opportunity to creatively demonstrate their understanding of one of the following economic concepts: scarcity; natural, human, and capital resources; opportunity cost; producers and consumers; goods and services; or personal finance concepts: savings and investing, taxes, markets, sources of income, and philanthropy.
