Spring Semester - Online Challenge Window: 3/12 - 3/23/2012
The PFL Challenge is an opportunity for students to demonstrate their knowledge of personal finance. By competing with other students, this competition provides a useful tool to help encourage students and it generates excitement in the classroom. Join hundreds of high school and middle school students across the state in this great academic challenge.
Every high school student and middle school student in Texas is invited to compete in the PFL Challenge. TCEE understands that districts are seeing a shortage of funding for substitutes and buses. So this year, the Texas Challenge will be completely online. Each team member and the teacher of the first and second place middle school teams will win a cash prize. Each team member and the teacher of the first place high school team will win a cash prize and expenses paid for travel and hotel to the national competition in St. Louis, MO. Each team member and the teacher of the second place high school team will also win a cash prize. All winners will be notified in April.
The program is made possible by the Council for Economic Education (CEE) through funding from the United States Department of Education Office of Innovation and Improvement. All registration and participation fees will be paid for by TCEE through our partnerships with CEE and Opportunity Texas.
For every team that completes the online PFL Challenge, TCEE will enter the teacher's name in a drawing for $100. There is no limit to how many teams a teachers can enter. Team registration continues through March 23rd.
