All students enrolled in Independent Living at Mt. Spokane participate in this nine-week challenge, where they experience activities like paying bills, managing expenses, saving money, investing in retirement, paying taxes and more, in the safety of a classroom. The program was created to help address the need for more financial education in high schools.

The H&R Block Budget Challenge is free to high school teachers. Participants play classroom against classroom and student against student, competing for $3 million in grants, scholarships and cash prizes.
