LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Seven Floyd Central students received $20,000 scholarships today that could be life-changing.

The scholarships were part of H&R Block's Budget Challenge. It's a real-life personal finance simulation program. 

H&R Block says the students might not have gone to college without the scholarships. 

A grant was also given to Floyd Central High School. School leaders say they will divide that money into $500 scholarships for 10 students.
