Welcome to the National Personal Finance Challenge Semi Finals Round!


The National Personal Finance Challenge (NPFC) is a nationwide competition that provides high school students the opportunity to build and demonstrate their knowledge of money management. Teams showcase their expertise in the concepts of earning income, buying goods and services, saving, using credit, investing, and protecting. 

This fun and motivating team experience begins with competitions at the state level. The winning team from each state moves on to the National Semi-Finals from which the top-scoring teams advance to compete for the National Title. For spring 2021, Semi-Finals and Finals competitions will be held entirely online.  


Teachers register teams of three-to-four high school students.  State-level competitions are run by the Council for Economic Education affiliates that organize them. For information on your local/state competition, contact your state coordinator, who can be found through the registration page.  

National Semi-Finals will be scheduled by region to be held on one day between May 6-May 26. This round asks teams to answer online multiple-choice questions.
