  • [Enter name of state LS program here] Montana’s LifeSmarts season kicks off today! We sponsor this free, national consumer literacy program that prepares the next generation of consumers and workers with the knowledge and skills they need to become successful adults. LifeSmarts, which is a program of the National Consumers League (the nation’s pioneering consumer watchdog), pushes students to use critical thinking skills and provides scholarship opportunities! The program is active in 43 states and Washington, DC, and reaches 125,000 teens each year online and in classrooms. Students are exposed to core consumer topics that are critical for successful adulthood but aren’t traditionally taught in a classroom: personal finance, consumer rights and responsibilities, health and safety, technology, and the environment.
