Background:

This challenge invites students aged 14-18 to apply their creativity, skills, and passion to develop a new learning resource to help teach important financial knowledge and skills to other youth. The project can be submitted in either English or French. Students can get creative! The project can be a video, a podcast, a play, a booklet, a PowerPoint presentation, an animated PowerPoint presentation, a whiteboard animation, a song, a piece of art, an ad, a poem, a website, a video game, an animation, an app, a social media post, a 3D printed object,  etc.

It is a great project for those students attending class virtually. Or, you can simply let students know about it and encourage creativity. Students can participate either as individuals or teams of up to four.  

Please note: Students in your class who learn about the challenge directly or through a community group and want to participate may ask you to register your class so they can enter the challenge.


You will be asked to submit 1-4 of your best class projects by April 15, 2021 by returning to this website and following the instructions that will be given at that time. You can use your own criteria for assessment or refer to a detailed rubric which will be used for regional and national judging. That rubric will be available on the program website soon. Regional judging will determine the best in each region which will compete at a National Challenge.


Prizes for the National Challenge are:

  • 1st Prize: $10,000 towards future education or training – either to winning individual or shared equally among team members
  • 2nd Prize: $5,000 towards future education or training – either to 2nd place individual or shared equally among team members
