Financial Fitness Challenge for Canadian Students Feb 2-28th: Win scholarship prizes toward homeschool curriculum

Financial Fitness Challenge is an educational program designed to enrich the financial literacy of Canadian students, sponsored by the Canadian Securities Administrators.

Designed to offer Canadian students the resources and tools necessary to improve their financial education through the use of interactive activities, financial tips, and an online quiz, it is primarily for those aged 15-21.  If students complete the quiz successfully they are entered into a draw to win one of 13 scholarship prizes worth $750, which can be used towards any at-home curriculum. The contest runs February 2, 2009 to February 28, 2009.

This year, the Financial Fitness Challenge focuses on building partnerships with not only Canadian students, but with teachers, schools, parents and homeschoolers so that all Canadian students have a strong support system for understanding and enhancing their financial literacy. As a result, the Financial Fitness Challenge Website offers a multitude of resources to help parents and teachers engage their students with the program both at home and at school.

Here is a snapshot of a few fun and useful resources and activities that might be of particular interest.

Children (ages 15-21) can take The Challenge for a chance to win one of 13 scholarship prizes across Canada.

If your children are not ready for The Challenge quite yet, have fun with some of the warm-up activities and tips, or feel free to join the new Financial Fitness Challenge Facebook page where students can interact with other challengers and friends.

Laugh,

  1. Hi. I am looking for someone or some information. At one point I heard of a homeschooling family in Nova Scotia (I believe) who were registered with a non-resident board in Alberta. Do you know anything about something like this?
