“What you are going through today will help you face the challenges that await you as you enter your adult life,” Fedele said, who was introduced by Credit Union League of Connecticut President/CEO Tony Emerson. During the fair, held at Central Connecticut State University, credit unions and businesses helped students make real-life choices in areas such as transportation, housing, food, entertainment, travel and other extras. Students in personal finance, economics, marketing and other business classes prepared for the fair by studying budgeting, the league said. Students attending received annual starting salary and budget based on an occupation that interests them. They visited booths to make life choices, and completed budget worksheet and met with a financial counselor to see if their choices were within the budget. Financial reality fairs enhance financial literacy among youth in preparation for life’s challenges, financial or otherwise.
