LifeSmarts helps teens to become smart, savvy, responsible consumers and citizens.
LifeSmarts is a powerful and proven national educational opportunity for teenagers in Grades 9 through 12. LifeSmarts complements the curriculum already in place at your high school and can be a flexible extra-curricular activity for your classes.
LifeSmarts focuses on five key areas of consumer knowledge that teens need to know in order to independently negotiate today’s increasingly complex marketplace: Personal Finance, Health and Safety, the Environment, Technology/ Workforce Preparation and Consumer Rights and Responsibilities. LifeSmarts helps teens to become smart, savvy, responsible consumers and citizens. Teens gain a solid understanding of their consumer rights and responsibilities and workplace protections. They have fun competing while developing teamwork skills, self-esteem, verbal communication, and leadership.
Members of a Connecticut LifeSmarts team study together under the supervision of at least one adult coach, and compete online for the chance to represent Connecticut at the National LifeSmarts Championship.
The State Champion will compete in the National Championship in Washington DC, April 20-24, 2022.
Coaches and their players must register on the LifeSmarts web site, www.lifesmarts.org. There is no cost for teams to register or compete in the Connecticut LifeSmarts program.
