Westfields Sports High
THE students at Westfields Sports High School know their money stuff.
Year 10 students Sandy Panyanouvong, Natalie Siri, Wendy Tu and Danielle Wylie won the metropolitan Years 10-12 Award in the Money Stuff
Challenge. Their winning entry, an innovative magazine called Housemates, features useful tips and a checklist for young renters, plus some
cautionary disaster stories and helpful advise.
Fair trading minister Virginia Judge was impressed.
"The entry caught the eye of the competition judges because of it's glossy
magazine design and no nonsence approach to setting up a shared house, from selecting housemates and organising a kitty, to resolving every day
disputed," she said.
The Money Stuff Challenge encourages young people to be creative in researching and developing consumer messages that target their peers.
It is open to all public and private high school students in New South Wales, with more than 900 students from 51 schools entering this year for a share of the $16,000 cash pool.
The Westfields Students each receive $200, as well as $2000 and a trophy for the school.
