Welcome to the 2023 Rhode Island Personal Finance Challenge!
The 2023 RI Finance Challenge online testing period will be held from April 3, 2023 - April 24 , 2023.
Teachers are able to log in now and continue to register new students and teams until the testing period ended on April 24, 2023.
Welcome! The 2023 Rhode Island Personal Finance Challenge is a wonderful opportunity for students to demonstrate their knowledge of personal finance by competing with other students from across the state in multiple-choice examinations.
This year, the 2023 RI Personal Finance Challenge is being offered for the 9th consecutive year by the Rhode Island Council for Economic Education and Rhode Island Jump$tart Coalition, thanks to generous support from Fidelity Investments.
Rhode Island's statewide 2023 Personal Finance Challenge will be conducted entirely online during the period April 3 - April 24, 2023. There are separate divisions for High School and Middle School students, as well as Invest in Girls and Access Zone divisions. The Challenge testing will be moderated by teachers in the classroom setting.
In 2023, the 3 highest-scoring schools in each division will be awarded trophies. An awards ceremony will be held in June 2023 to ensure students are recognized at the state level.
Research has shown that student competitions increase student participation, promote attendance, and help students achieve higher grades and test scores. For teachers, the Challenge provides a useful tool to help encourage students and generate excitement for classroom materials.
RI teachers are able to register their students starting on January 10, 2023 for this exciting competition. Once the Challenge begins, they can share the codes with their students and arrange for them to take the Challenge individually under their supervision during the period April 3- April 24, 2023. Teachers will be able to log in and see their students' individual and team scores afterward.
Wishing everyone the best as we all work to build RI students' financial literacy!
Dr. Margaret Brooks, President, RI Council for Economic Education and President, RI Jump$tart Coalition
