Fun, informative and exciting, the Finance and Investment Challenge Bowl (FICB) is an interactive educational game designed to help promote financial literacy and awareness among youth.

Using a quiz show format, the game challenges high school students and tests their knowledge about personal finance, business, economics and current events.  In the spirit of competition, the game features teams of students who face off against one another, gradually eliminating each other, with the final two teams playing for “the Cup” and bragging rights in their respective regions.

Challenge Bowls are currently held in Appleton, Green Bay, La Crosse (New), Madison, Milwaukee, Racine/Kenosha, Rhinelander, Wausau, and the Menominee Reservation. Regional winners are then invited to compete in the state finals competition which establishes the annual statewide champion.

Asset Builders has established excellent collaborations with the school districts in all of the participating jurisdictions which help to market and host the competition.  Students, teachers and school administrators have all expressed enthusiastic support for the Finance and Investment Challenge Bowl because the game-like format makes the subject matter fun and relevant for the students to learn.

The statewide competition is geared toward the high school level, however Milwaukee hosts a middle school as well as high school competition.
