How it Works

Welcome to the New Jersey

Personal Finance Challenge!

The 2024 New Jersey Personal Finance Challenge is underway!

The New Jersey Personal Finance Challenge is a fun and free way for students to flex their intellectual muscle and test their knowledge of personal finance all from the comfort of their home or school. Sponsored by the Council for Economic Education, this online state challenge encourages students to apply their financial literacy knowledge by competing with other students from across the state. There are two divisions: one for high school students, and one for middle school students.

There is no cost to either teachers or students to participate in the New Jersey Personal Finance Challenge.

Once registered online and activated by the challenge coordinator, teachers can immediately start to create their teams.

Complete information about dates for New Jersey can be found on the "Dates and Times" menu item to the left. Once the challenge begins, students from around the state will be able to demonstrate their economic literacy through an online exam.
