Online Challenge

The FinanceChallenge ONLINE! is free of cost to participate. Teachers must register teams comprised of 3-4 students in grades 6-12 in order for them to receive their unique access code. Once each member has their access code they will take the FinanceChallenge ONLINE! individually, but monitored by a teacher in the room. Each student has 35 minutes to answer a 30 question, rapid-fire exam consisting of caterories on Earning Income, Buying Goods and Services, Saving, Using Credit, Financial Investing, and Protecting and Insuring.  Each student is to complete the challenge as an individual (students do not work in a group).  No outside materials or testing aides can be used during the challenge session.  And the teacher/coach cannot assist students with the questions by guiding them or re-phrasing a question. 


The winning team in Montana will be invited to compete at the national personal finance challenge.
