Students earn 10 points for every correct response and 0 points for each incorrect answer. Every question must be answered to move on and students are not able to go back to previous questions.
There will only be one online competition in Kansas for 2021, and the top scoring team in each division will be crowned state champions. Advancement to the National Personal Finance Challenge is limited to the High School Division, and will be determined by team score.
The Kansas State Championship team will then have the honor to represent our state in the National Personal Finance Challenge on June 3. For more information on the National Personal Finance Challenge, click the image below:
