National Personal Finance Challenge

The National Personal Finance Challenge (NPFC) is a nationwide competition that provides high school students the opportunity to build and demonstrate their knowledge of money management. Teams showcase their expertise in the concepts of earning income, buying goods and services, saving, using credit, investing, and protecting. 

This fun and motivating team experience begins with competitions at the state level. The winning team from each state moves on to the National Semi-Finals from which the top-scoring teams advance to compete for the National Title. For spring 2022, the First Round National Challenge and National Semi-Finals will be held online. The four teams advancing to the National Finals will travel to New York City on an all-expense paid trip to compete in-person.   


Top-performing teams in the National Personal Finance Challenge receive a trophy, banner, and cash prizes for each student member corresponding to their team’s rank in the National Finals: 

1st place: $2,000
2nd place: $1,000
3rd place: $500
4th place: $250
