Every high school and middle school student and teacher in Rhode Island is invited to compete in the RI Finance Challenge. Teachers can create as many student teams as they'd like. The online finance challenge is free for all Rhode Island teachers and their students thanks to our generous sponsor, Fidelity Investments.

Good luck to all our student competitors! The Finance Challenge ONLINE! is a great way to learn more about personal finance and participate with students from across Rhode Island in an exciting and fun competition.
