Appleton North High School student, Paige Givens, was recently recognized for creating a financial literacy game designed specifically for children and teens with disabilities.
She created the game, “SuperConsumers” as a project through her school’s DECA club, which is a high school marketing education program that includes classroom and work-based learning experiences. With help from the student marketing team, Givens has garnered some public exposure.
She created the game after a friend with an intellectual disability was financially exploited by some people during a shopping trip. Her sister has the same syndrome as her friend, which prompted Givens to design the game.
She has presented the game to several different classes and schools and hopes to further promote the game to spread awareness about safety and financial literacy.
