Delaware Middle and High School Personal Finance Challenges

This is a past event

Middle and High School teams are invited to vie for the Delaware Personal Finance Challenge state championship title this spring.  The Middle School Challenge will be administered online.  The High School championship will be held in-person on Thurs., April 24, 2024. Both will provide the opportunity for students to demonstrate their knowledge of personal finance by competing with other students across the state.


The PFC is open to qualifying teams taking any course (including the CEEE's Keys to Financial Success) that incorporates personal finance topics such as: Earning Income & Protecting and Insuring, Using Credit & Buying Goods and Services, and Saving & Financial Investing.


Every teacher in Delaware teaching a course (such as Keys to Financial Success) that covers the topics listed above, is invited to have student teams compete in the preliminary online round of the Finance Challenge.  


Teacher Registration is now open and continues through February 26, 2024.  Visit:


To qualify for the competition, individual students must be registered by their teacher in a preliminary round of online competition which runs February 26 through March 28, 2024.   


Following the online testing round, each registered high school teacher will have the opportunity to advance one team of four students to the in-person state championship where teams will vie for cash prizes, to be awarded to both first- and second-place teachers and students.
