National Personal Finance Challenge


National Personal Finance Challenge

One of the most interesting sites I came across recently is the National Personal Finance Challenge.   It sounds pretty cool.  . 

Their site reads,

The National Personal Finance Challenge is an opportunity for students to demonstrate their knowledge of Personal Finance by competing with other students across the nation in a three-round competition. The two teams with the highest scores will then compete for the national title in a fast-paced "Quiz Bowl" round.

In the spring of 2013 we will crown a new National Personal Finance Championship team. Students will have a chance to win awards such as $1,000 per team member, $500 per team member, iPads and Kindles. All students will enjoy an exciting day of challenging competition, meet students from other states, and have the opportunity to win additional prizes and cash!

The National Personal Finance Challenge will be held May 2, 2013 in St. Louis, MO.

The National Personal Finance Challenge is the culminating event to state challenges across the country. Participating states use the Finance Challenge Online portal to offer the online round in their states. Top teams then compete at exciting on-site events to crown their state champion. This year, those state winners will go on to compete in Saint Louis to determine a National Champion.

I’d like to hear from you if you and your students have ever participated in this competition.  Please give us a review of your experience.

Thanks for stopping by!
