Choices Challenge: Keep Your Cash
A whopping 83 percent of teens* say they don’t know how to manage money. Don’t be one of them! We challenge you to learn how to save big for the stuff that matters.
How this #ChoicesChallenge works:
Sign up. Register to join the Council for Economic Education’s Gen i Revolution (genirevolution.org), an online personal finance game that will test your money-management skills and teach you new tips along the way. Join the Choices class and enter to win by using the code “CHOICES.”
Play. Dividend? Revolving credit? 401(k)? Head spinning yet? Navigate your way through each of five missions to figure out not only what these words mean, but also how you can gain skills to make your money grow.
Show me the money. The money in the game may not be real, but the prizes are! The top three highest scorers will each earn a $100 savings bond.
Want a $100 savings bond, which will be worth more the longer you hold onto it? Join the Gen i Revolution with the class code “CHOICES” and complete all five missions before March 15, 2015. The top three highest scores will win!
