/  2016 Standard RTE Sample

Welcome to LifeSmarts! Here you’ll learn about consumer issues that impact your everyday life – everything from managing your finances, making smart consumer choices, understanding technology, staying healthy, and helping the environment – all with the goal of putting you in charge.

South Central Service Cooperative (SCSC) is excited to serve as the state coordinating organization for the 2015-16 LifeSmarts season. Coaches are invited to register and create teams, and students may register and compete online. We hope that you’ll check out the resources you find here, test your knowledge with practice quizzes, use TeamSmarts and LifeSmarts U, and compete online. Our 2016 competition schedule is listed in the box at the top right of our page. Middle school dates are the same. Contact Karen Olson at SCSC: kolson@mnscsc.org or 507.327.6191 or the LifeSmarts’ staff with your questions.

Top-scoring state teams will gain recognition from the National Consumers League, and a few state teams will have the opportunity to compete in a live state competition. The Minnesota LifeSmarts Champion team is invited to compete at the National competition held on April 9-12, 2016 in Denver, Colorado.
