Personal Finance Literacy brings Personal Success

The mission of the Minnesota Council on Economic Education is to equip Minnesotans with the economic and personal finance understanding needed to succeed in today's complex economy. The PERSONAL FINANCE DECATHLON supports this mission by creating a fun incentive for students to take ownership of their education, their choices and their future.

The Decathlon is an opportunity for students to demonstrate their knowledge of personal finance literacy by competing with other students across the state in an online quiz.

All high school students are eligible. Teachers may enter multiple teams. There is no registration cost to teachers or students to participate in the Decathlon.

Timeline: Register for the Decathlon starting January 1, 2018. Once registered, create teams of 3-4 students. Students compete online between January 1 and March 12, 2018. Twelve schools will be invited to the state competition at the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis on April 18, 2018. The state winner will travel to the national competition in Lincoln, NE. Up to $2,000 will be provided to this team to support travel costs.
