LifeSmarts Be Safe Buy Real Poster Contest

A winning poster from last year’s event


The LifeSmarts Be Safe Buy Real Poster Contest invites students to show what they know about counterfeit goods.

LifeSmarts is excited to partner with UL Standards & Engagement on its Be Safe Buy Real anti-counterfeiting campaign to give students and educators a deeper understanding of this global issue and its impact on individuals, communities, and economies.

Kicking off in November, while LifeSmarts focuses on Consumer Rights and Responsibilities, all LifeSmarts participants have the opportunity to create and share informational posters to communicate their knowledge of fake products.

Ten students will win $100 cash prizes for their winning designs.

Ten teams attending the 2023 National LifeSmarts Championship will receive $500 travel stipends.
