2023 Reality Fair

NuVista is excited to be the title sponsor for the 2023 Reality Fair, Bite of Reality.  This amazing event will be April 12th 2023.  Seniors from Montrose High School, Olathe High School and Peak Academy will be attending this in person event. 

 The Richard Myles Johnson Foundation has created Bite of Reality® which is a hands-on app based simulation that appeals to teens while giving them a taste of real-world financial realities. Teens are given a fictional occupation, salary, credit score, spouse and a child, student loan debt, credit card debt, and medical insurance payments. The teens then walk around to various table-top stations to “purchase” housing, transportation, food, clothing,and other needs. Fortunately, the game also includes a “credit union” to help with their financial needs.

This interactive activity will teach teens how to make financial decisions and give them a better understanding of the challenges of living on a budget. Teens will have to deal with a pushy “car salesperson” and a commission-based “realtor,” and weigh their wants versus their needs. There’s even a “Fickle Finger of Fate” that will give the students unexpected “expenses” or “windfalls”—just like in real life.

To support this amazing event, join this awesome group of Sponsors!
