The U.S. Department  of the Treasury and  the U.S. Deparment of Education are sponsoring the National Financial Capability Challenge, a program designed to improve the financial literacy of middle- and high school  age students. The initiative offers free, online lesson plans through an Educator Toolkit  that includes ready-made lessons (in PDF format) on such topics as managing your money and finances, paychecks and earnings, entrepreneurship, investing, consumer credit, insurance and identity theft.

Students can also take the Challenge, which is an online series of financial questions. The test is for any student age  13 – 19, (including homeschoolers), and takes about 30 minutes on average. It’s being offered  from March  7  to  April  8. Top-scoring students will receive award certificates. For students to participate in the Challenge,  you have to first register on the site.
