Make plans to join us in 2021!

We are headed to Cincinnati, Ohio, April 17-20, 2021. And you’re invited! Please save the date.

We are looking forward to a DOUBLE competition in 2021 as we invite all 2020 state champion and wild card teams to compete as well as the winning teams in the 2020-2021 program year.


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 over four days at Nationals. 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.
