A competition might seem like a big leap for your students.  While prior experience from a business course can help, it is not required to compete.  We encourage all students to participate to further build their financial competence and confidence.  Just the act of exploring the topics of the competition is a step in the right direction and while top performers are awarded prizes, all students benefit from the experience and are recognized with a certificate of achievement.  Below we've provided sample questions by topic so that you and your students can get an idea of what to expect.  Use these questions as conversation starters or to identify a topic area to focus on as students explore the possibility of competing or prepare for the competition itself.
