Welcome to North Dakota LifeSmarts Competition!
The LifeSmarts program gives students the opportunity to learn consumer information that they can use now and for the rest of their lives. “Learn it. Live it.” Educating teens for the real world!
LifeSmarts, the Ultimate Consumer Challenge, is a FREE consumer education competition open to teens in grades 6-12. The competition tests students on their knowledge of:
Health and Safety
Technology and Workforce Preparation
Consumer Rights and Responsibilities
Educators: Please give your students the opportunity to enhance their consumer knowledge that they can use now and in the future.
Students: Take a practice quiz and see if you’re ready for the ultimate consumer challenge. Talk with your friends and form a team. Each team needs an adult sponsor or coach.
Schools may enter more than one coach and coaches may enter more than one team, but only two teams from a school may qualify for the state competition.
