Washington Gas, a Winter Conference Sponsor, in collaboration with Junior Achievement launched Maryland’s 2nd JA Finance Park® for students in Montgomery County this October. The state-of-the-art facility, among 21 others in the nation, is expected to host about 12,000 students form 40 middle schools each year.
According to the press release:
Washington Gas has served the DC-area for 170 years, and we are thrilled to support education initiatives in the local community that empower the next generation of professionals with skillsets that prepare them for a successful future. We applaud Junior Achievement for encouraging today’s youth to be financially astute. The lessons learned at the center will help them at home, in the classroom and eventually in the workplace, and we look forward to sharing our diverse energy expertise and volunteer hours to teach participants best practices in the energy industry.

Washington Gas and Pepco have created the “YOUtility Challenge” a storefront, among many others in the facility, that teaches students about budgeting for energy costs. The challenge uses real-life scenarios in a full-day curriculum.
