Severn School team advances to Fed Challenge national finals

The Severn School in Severna Park won the Fifth District championship round of the 2006 Fed Challenge Competition held last week at the Federal Reserve Bank in Richmond, Va.

The winning team consisted of Mia Hencinski, Chris Hoehn-Saric, Chris Hughes, Jonathan Moen and Sean Quinn, and was coached by John Bodley.

The team advances to the national finals, which will be held in Washington from April 30 to May 1. District winners will compete before a panel of judges that traditionally has included bank presidents, members of the board of governors and other federal reserve officials. It is customary for the Federal Reserve chairman to make an appearance.

The Federal Reserve sponsors Fed Challenge to encourage better understanding of the nation's central bank and the forces influencing economic conditions in the United States and abroad.
