Welcome to the New Jersey FinanceChallenge ONLINE!

The Online Challenge will run from February 24 to April 8, 2022.

What is the National Personal Finance Challenge? 

The National Personal Finance Challenge is an opportunity for students to demonstrate their knowledge of personal finance by connecting with other students from across the state in an online competition.

The highest scoring team will become the state champion and represent New Jersey in the National Semi-Finals to determine the top teams advancing to the National Finals, on an all expense paid trip to New York City, from June 4 - June 6, 2022. The National Finals round will consist of a case study scenario.

  • Top teams in the National Finals receive a cash prize for each team member corresponding to their team’s rank:

    1st place:   $2,000
    2nd place:  $1,000
    3rd place:   $500
    4th place:   $250

The FinanceChallenge ONLINE! is designed to provide an online competition in personal finance for teachers and students throughout the nation. Research has shown that student clubs and competitions increase student participation, promote attendance, and help students achieve higher grades and standardized test scores.
