Congratulations to the finalists for the 2023 National Personal Finance Challenge! The National Personal Finance Challenge (NPFC) is a nationwide competition that offers high school students the opportunity to build and demonstrate their knowledge in the concepts of earning income, spending, saving, investing, managing credit, and managing risk. In the first round, competitors completed a 30-question, online rapid-fire exam. In regional and national finals, students use what they have learned from the six areas of knowledge to create a financial plan for a fictitious family scenario.
We’re excited that this year classmates, teachers, families, and fans of personal finance will be able to watch the finals live on the CEE YouTube channel. The final round is comprised of a case study presentation, where students use what they have learned from the six areas of knowledge to create a financial plan for a fictitious family scenario. Tune in on Monday, June 5 at 1:00 p.m. ET. We’re sure you’ll be impressed with this year’s competitors!! Watch the livestream here.
The NPFC has been generously sponsored by Voya Financial since 2015. “As a company that’s laser focused on financial wellness as a whole, we needed a program that could teach everything and have the potential to reach every kid who needed it. We were introduced to CEE and the Challenge, and the rest is history,” says Braeden Mayrisch, Vice President of Stakeholder Equity and Impact at Voya Financial.
Once again, congratulations to the winners. We can’t wait to see you at finals!
