The Personal Finance Challenge, sponsored by the Nebraska Council on Economic Education, features teams of high school students from across Nebraska, testing their knowledge of economics and personal finance. Top-scoring teams move on to face-to-face competition at three regional sites in April with the winner advancing to the national competition in May. Contributions to NEST 529 college savings plans are presented to members of the top three winning teams.
