LifeSmarts is a national educational competition focused on personal finance and consumer topics. It complements the curriculum already in place in schools and can be used as an activity for classes, groups, clubs, and community organizations. This free program, open to 6th-12th-grade students in the United States, quizzes students about personal finance, health and safety, the environment, technology, and consumer rights and responsibilities.
FBLA teams may compete on the LifeSmarts website where they will have the opportunity to win monthly “TeamSmarts” challenges and compete against other chapters for the right to represent FBLA at the National LifeSmarts Championship each April.
LifeSmarts is a program of the National Consumers League, which was founded in 1899 and is America’s pioneer consumer organization.
Note: LifeSmarts is no longer part of FBLA’s Competitive Events program. Students can compete in both the LifeSmarts competition and a competitive event.
