#1 Stop the scavenger hunt for quality materials

Budget Challenge is the most complete and up-to-date program available. Everything you need is right here!

#2 Coaching is more fun than lecturing

As students learn-by-doing in the simulation, teachers find that they:

  • lecture less
  • have richer classroom discussions
  • have more fun teaching

#3 Parents will track you down to say "Thank you"

"Thank You! We have been trying to have conversations about money at home with our daughter, but they always felt like we were talking AT her. Now that she is taking Budget Challenge, she is approaching US with questions! This should be a requirement for every teen."
