Make plans to join us in April 2021!

LifeSmarts will host both the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 National LifeSmarts Championships in April 2021. We look forward to this DOUBLE competition as we celebrate State Champion teams and Wild Card teams from both program years.

If we are able to be together in person, we will meet in Cincinnati, Ohio, April 17-20, 2021. Please save the date.

If COVID-19 makes that impossible, we will host a virtual event. Stay tuned, we will update you as we know more.


Volunteers are needed to serve as Question Masters, judges, timekeepers, scorekeepers, and more. Volunteers are professional experts in one or more of the LifeSmarts topics which include: personal finance, consumer rights, technology, the environment, and health and safety. Volunteers are needed Sunday, April 18, and Monday, April 19, 2021.


The best and brightest state champion teams and wild card teams are invited to compete in the National LifeSmarts Championship. Teams compete in buzzer matches, Speed Smarts, take individual assessments, and complete other team challenges.


LifeSmarts welcomes sponsors to support the program in the following ways:

  • Fund: Underwrite post-secondary scholarships to honor students’ high achievement.
  • Provide: Donate 325 “swag” items to fill goody bags distributed to all participants.
  • Sponsor: Help students by sponsoring a meal, activity, or portions of the competition itself.
