Enter the NEW LifeSmarts BPA Technology & Workforce Preparation Challenge and the LifeSmarts BPA Personal Finance Challenge!  

To enter the LifeSmarts BPA Technology & Workforce Preparation Challenge and/or the LifeSmarts BPA Personal Finance Challenge, Advisers (Coaches) should follow this process and establish a BPA team or teams.

Note: If you had a team or teams compete in the 2023 LifeSmarts BPA Personal Finance Challenge, and some of the same teams want to compete, you can simply have them login again. You can make any adjustments needed. Instructions are here.  Each team must have one student selected as the team captain.

For new teams:  Teams of two students (grades 7 & 8 or grades 9-12) register and join the team. The coach designates one of the two students as the team captain. The captain will see the BPA Technology & Workforce Preparation Quiz during the month of January and the BPA Personal Finance test during the month of  February under their “quizzes” tab once they log in. The team of two works together to take each quiz by the deadline!

Technology & Workforce Preparation Challenge dates – January 1 – 31, 2024 at midnight EST
