Introducing OTC Medicine Safety Mentor Project

New mentoring scholarship opportunity for LifeSmarts teens!

Ready to tackle LifeSmarts? You’re in the right place! Here’s what’s available for your students this month:

    • Become a LifeSmarts OTC Medicine Safety Mentor. High school students are encouraged to become LifeSmarts OTC Medicine Safety Mentors to share safety messages with younger students. Mentors are eligible for exclusive scholarship opportunities, may win chapter or team cash prizes, and can earn gift cards for their coach or adviser. Watch the video above to learn more!


  • Take the December TeamSmarts quiz. This 100-question assessment, found on your team captain’s “My Quizzes” page, is a great way to prepare for the online competition. It is a great practice tool, and you have a chance to win $100 for your team or chapter! This month the focus is on technology.
  • Use the Pathways feature to discover new ways to use LifeSmarts. This resource is designed to quickly show you all the ways that your team, class or chapter can use the LifeSmarts web site and competitions.
  • Check out the new LifeSmarts edition of Financial Football. It’s a fun way to play LifeSmarts. One thousand LifeSmarts questions are dedicated to this game, so you can play often and be continually challenged. This educational activity is great for low attendance days, too.


LifeSmarts was pleased to join other non-profits across the country in #GivingTuesday, a campaign focused on generosity and support for community groups. While that day has passed, LifeSmarts still depends on donations to continue our mission of consumer education. If you or someone you know may be interested in donating, you can do so through our Donate page.

Thank you for joining us as we bring another year to a close. From all of us at LifeSmarts, Happy Holidays!
