National Personal Finance Challenge

Welcome to the National Personal Finance Challenge!

UPDATE: See the results of the 2019 National Personal Finance Challenge, plus photos and video, here!

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.

The 2019 National Personal Finance Challenge will be held Friday, May 10, 2019 at the University of Nebraska Lincoln College of Business.
