About 120 high school students from across the state competed in 12 different categories. The annual event allows students to show off their talents and compete for financial prizes with their peers.

This year, regional winners were challenged to compete virtually and send their efforts in for judging.

Locally, South Dearborn High School's Brady Huff was the runner-up in Financial Literacy, while Madison High School's Taylor Harsin placed second in Employability Skills.
