Personal Finance Challenge

Open to every school in the state.

High School teachers from public and private schools across Oklahoma are invited to register their high school student teams to compete in the Oklahoma Personal Finance Challenge. Middle school teachers are also welcome to register. Their students will play in the middle school division which is not eligible to continue onto the National Challenge. Our State Challenge lets students demonstrate their knowledge of personal financial literacy in an online competition with other students from across Oklahoma. Our online competition includes accessible online testing, making it possible for every school in the state to participate.

This is a fun and competitive way to engage students more fully in their learning while assessing how well they are meeting financial literacy standards. The winners of the Oklahoma Personal Finance Challenge will represent Oklahoma in the National Challenge Semi-Finals and potentially National Challenge Finals.
