Nobel Laureate in Economics James Tobin, in 1981, said, “High school graduates will be making economic choices all their lives, as breadwinners and consumers, and as citizens and voters. A wide range of people will bombard them with economic information and misinformation for their entire lives. They will need some capacity for critical judgment.”
The Indiana Personal Finance Challenge is a great opportunity for students to demonstrate their personal finance chops. More importantly, the competition helps students improve their understanding of economic and financial literacy concepts that will serve them well as adults!
