The Personal Finance Challenge competition, sponsored by the Nebraska Council on Economic Education,
features teams of high school students from across Nebraska taking part in an online competition to test their knowledge of
essential financial concepts, including income, spending, credit, savings, and investing. The top-scoring teams move on to
face-to-face competition at three regional events with the winner advancing to a national competition in St. Louis.
The Nebraska Educational Savings Trust (NEST), administered by the State Treasurerís Office, awards a total of $14,000 in
college savings plan scholarships to members of the top three teams.
The Nebraska Council on Financial Education is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the economic and financial
literacy of Nebraska students. The Council is housed at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and has centers at UNL, UNO, UNK,
Wayne State College, and Chadron State College.
