cashKudos to the Bergen County Academies Federal Challenge Team for being named Group Champion by the High School Fed Challenge and for earning the highest score in its bracket. The team did an extraordinary job researching, preparing and presenting their recommendations last week to the NY Fed during a period of unprecedented economic uncertainty and financial market volatility. The team responded to rapidly changing conditions and presented a robust and compelling analysis. Unfortunately, but not unexpectedly, the final round will not be held this year. 

Congratulations to the students listed below for their tremendous accomplishment.
