November 22, 2013 at 5:50 pm

Iowa high schools have a chance at $1,000 when they assess their students’ financial knowledge in the 2013 – 2014 Iowa Financial Know-How Challenge. Registration is free and simple, and participation can be completed in a single 45-minute class period.

Schools that register for the Challenge and have students complete the Ednalysis Financial Literacy Assessment by Jan. 31 will be entered in a drawing for a chance to win one of 30 cash prizes. The drawing will award each winning school $1,000 to benefit its financial literacy programs and scholarship fund.

Iowa Student Loan®, the Iowa Department of Education, the Iowa Jump$tart Coalition, Junior Achievement of Central Iowa and the Iowa College Access Network are the proud sponsors of this program.

Test Students’ Financial Knowledge

The assessment allows teachers to see how well their students understand essential financial literacy skills in five key areas:

  • Achieving Financial Goals
  • Managing Money Effectively
  • Debt Decision-Making
  • Investment and Asset Building
  • Legal and Ethical Financial Behavior

Registered schools whose students complete the assessment will be entered in the drawing. Individual student scores are confidential and will be shared only with the high school.

Iowa high schools can now register at http://challenge.ednalysis.com for the 2013 – 2014 Iowa Financial Know-How Challenge and students can then begin taking the assessment. Use the “Get Started” link on the left to enter your school information and create your username and password.
