Project Description

 

Knowledge Matters is sponsoring the Virtual Business Finance Challenge, a newly recognized official competitive event. This event will be based on the Virtual Business–Personal Finance Online simulation. FBLA members will use the simulation to test their skills at managing their own financial lives and will compete against students across the country.  Members will experience real world financial issues such as budgeting, saving, opening bank accounts, getting a credit card, monitoring credit scores, education and advancement, online banking, paying taxes, finding a job, insurance, and more.

There will be two qualifying rounds held via the Internet during the school year:

  • October 22, 2019 (10:00 a.m.  EST) – November 15, 2019 (5:00 p.m.  EST)
  • February 3, 2020 (10:00 a.m.  EST) – February 28, 2020 (5:00 p.m.  EST)

The top 20 nationally ranked teams from each qualifying round will qualify to compete in a virtual final round to take place online in May. Only one team per state per round may qualify.
