NGPF Best of 2022: FinCap Friday

Every Friday during the school year, NGPF's FinCap Friday engages high school students through current events. Produced by Yanely Espinal, each one includes a 2 minute explainer video with a Kahoot quiz as well as a no-tech version. Since it's launch in August of 2018, FinCap Friday quizzes have been played more than 3 million times!

As the top 10 list below demonstrates, social media, inflation, teen jobs, used cars and crypto (think FTX fiasco) captured students' attention this year. Who knows what 2023 will bring but you can count on Yanely to make you smarter with timely information on the latest trends in personal finance. 

Envelope please...Here are the top FinCap Fridays produced in 2022:

  1. TikTok Made Me Buy It
  2. Prices on the Rise
  3. Tricks on Treats
  4. Average American Budget
  5. Teen Work Makes the Dream Work
  6. Second-Hand Saving
  7. Selling Like Hot Brakes
