About the Challenge

The National Financial Capability Challenge is an awards program designed to increase the financial knowledge and capability of high school aged youth across the United States. It incentivizes educators to teach the basics of personal finance to their students by rewarding students, educators, schools, and states for their participation and their successes.

Educators and top-scoring students receive award certificates, and schools and states with the highest participation rates earn special distinction.
