The California Budget Challenge produced by Next10 provides a useful and intuitive tool for instructors to introduce students to public budgeting. Students will reason through a series of budgeting decisions using information provided on the fiscal and practical implications of their choices. The Challenge is updated with each budget cycle, so it provides an up-to-date simulation that incorporates the effects of current broader economic forces on state budgets. Therefore, the California Budget Challenge allows instructors to reinforce theoretical material on budgeting with an engaging “real life” application.
