About The Finance & Investment Challenge Bowl

The Finance and Investment Challenge Bowl® (FICB) is a financial literacy program for high school students, teaching a wide range of financial literacy topics that align with Wisconsin’s Model Academic Standards for Personal Finance as well as the Jumpstart National Standards.

“Thank you from Wausau West! The students ALL told me that they wish they would have participated in this sooner because they had so much fun.”

Business Teacher - Wausau West HS

“Thank you for the tremendous opportunity to be part of the tournament. I loved seeing the students compete and challenge each other (as well as the adults) I hope that I can be part of the event next year. Thank you for all your hard work promoting financial education throughout the state. It was great meeting you as well as all of the individuals involved with the outstanding program!”

Family Living Educator - UW Extension-Clark County

“My students were filled with a buzz of excitement from the fun that they had at the Finance Bowl. Upon their return to school they were talking about the experience with their peers and some were even inspired to spend a couple of hours after school working with me on some accounting concepts to better understand course material prior to exams.”

Business Teacher - Madison Memorial HS

“Thanks so much for all you do to promote financial literacy. I get to see every day how vital it is that we actually TEACH it to our students.”

Business Teacher - Rhinelander HS

“This was the first time I participated in the FICB, and it was a great experience. I was amazed how much knowledge the students had. There was a little twist to the day when a team from Wausau East asked if they could play an extra game against another team at their school. We accommodated their request – it was a blast. Looking forward to participating next year.”
