About the Kansas Personal Finance Challenge:

The Personal Finance Challenge is an engaging competition for students learning about personal finance in the classroom. Working as individuals and on teams, students will be tested on their knowledge of facts and terms relating to finances.  Saving & Financial Investing, Protecting and Insuring, Buying Goods & Services, and Income & Money Management are the topics for each round. High scoring teams from the preliminary rounds will be invited to compete at the in-person state competition in the spring.

The Personal Finance Challenge is open to middle school (grades 6-8) and high school (grades 9-12) students.
