The Financial Challenge is a free, on-line personal finance competition for high school students in Washington. Teachers can enter students to take the multiple-choice exams during a three hour-window of their choosing between May 21 and 9:00 pm on May 24, 2018. Students take the exam, and results are announced on May 25th . It’s that easy. (Detailed contest rules can be found on the registration website). The top 5 placing students and their teachers will be recognized at an awards luncheon on May 31, 2018 at the Seattle branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco. We are pleased to announce that Duane Davidson, Washington State Treasurer, will be our luncheon speaker.
