A special thanks to the coaches who inspire their students to “learn it, live it” with LifeSmarts!


In LifeSmarts, teams of High School students, supported by adult coaches, represent their states or national student leadership organizations to compete for the National LifeSmarts Championship. Throughout competition students gain points for correctly answering questions about cybersecurity, credit reports, recycling, nutrition, consumer fraud, and much more.

I’m an alumni interested in coming to Nationals. Am I allowed to volunteer?

Of course! Everyone is welcome at LifeSmarts, especially our alumni. We’d love for you to stay in touch with us and join our LifeSmarts Alumni Facebook Group and join our LinkedIn group as well.

Alumni are welcome to volunteer. In fact, former participants well-versed in the rules of the competition make excellent officials. Those wishing to volunteer must register online and specify the times they are available. Volunteers are welcome to join us for group meals on the days they are volunteering (no ticket required). All volunteers are informed of their assignments in late March.

If you just wish to stop by and watch a match or two, there is no registration required.

We are unable provide financial assistance to participants traveling to Nationals. Attendees are responsible for covering all costs, including transportation and accommodations. The National Consumers League assumes no liability for those attending the competition.

Just like every player competing at Nationals, all attendees under the age of 18 must be chaperoned and must submit a release form signed by his/her parent or legal guardian.
