Financial Literacy in the Classroom

SAF, with the support of Genworth Canada, will once again be offering high school students the opportunity to develop confidence and competence in making financial decisions by offering supports and resources to prepare students to test and challenge their knowledge of personal finance and wealth management by participating in the 2018 Financial Literacy Competition (FLC).

Competition Date: May 30, 2018

Format: 75 multiple choice questions to be completed in 70 minutes

Delivery: In class, online between 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

Eligibility: Open to ALL grade 9 and 10 business studies students (currently enrolled or previously completed).

Last Day to Register: Teachers must register their class or club by Friday May 25, 2018 at 11am EDT.  Students must register in their class by Tuesday May 29, 2018 at 5pm EDT.

Reward and recognition: Each participating school will receive a ranked listing of their individual student participants and an overall school ranking. All participants will receive a Certificate of Achievement.  The top scoring students will be awarded and recognized through scholarships and prizes and will be invited to participate in an experiential learning opportunity at which time the awards will be presented.  Students are eligible for scholarship and prizes on their first attempt of the FLC only.
