Welcome to the 2021 Ohio Personal Finance Challenge!

The Ohio Personal Finance Challenge is an opportunity for high school students to demonstrate their knowledge of Personal Finance by competing with other students across the state in an ONLINE competition.

The 2021 Ohio Personal Finance Challenge will take place virtually via Zoom this year. The top ten Ohio student teams with the highest scores will then compete for the state title. Each team will be given a hypothetical family scenario. They will have approximately 40 minutes to create a presentation on their financial recommendations for the family. Each team will have 10 minutes to present their financial plan to our panel of expert judges. 

There is no cost to either teachers or students to participate! The winning team from Ohio will attend the National Personal Finance Challenge which will also be held virtually via Zoom this year.
