On Friday, October 30, 2015, 1st Ed Credit Union held a Financial Reality Fair at Fannett-Metal High School for the junior and senior classes. Approximately 70 students had a taste of reality when they chose their career path and stopped at 13 tables to plan their monthly budgets. At each table, the students had to choose a minimal, average or extravagant choice for different life decisions such as their home, car, night life, and food. Before they could head to the Financial Counselors, they had to spin the Wheel of Reality where they could get lucky and win the lottery or have a bad day and get a flat tire. After the students completed their budget worksheets, they added up all of their debits and credits to see if they were on track. If they were negative, they had to go back and downgrade some of their choices to be able to live with their income and still have money leftover. If they were positive, they discussed alternative options of what to do with their money rather than spend it.
