Welcome to the National Personal Finance Challenge!
You can’t read the news without seeing why a fundamental understanding of economics and finance is so important to the future of our youth and our country.
The National Personal Finance Challenge provides middle and high school students (gr. 6-12)* with an exciting and motivating opportunity to build, apply and showcase their knowledge of this important subject. And it provides teachers with the opportunity to give their students essential tools to create financial stability and economic opportunity. Students across the country compete on the state level, with state winners advancing to the National Finals. This year’s National Finals will be held May 10 & 11 in Lincoln, Nebraska.
