Each year Jump$tart Washington and WSECU co-sponsor the state's winner to attend the nation LifeSmarts Challenge .
LifeSmarts, the ultimate consumer challenge, is an educational opportunity for students in 6th-12th grade. This competition prepares students to enter the real world as smart adult consumers. Participants focus on five key topic areas: consumer rights and responsibilities, the environment, health and safety, personal finance, and technology.
Washington's LifeSmarts state competition occurs the last week of February. The online competition to qualify for state In-Person competition closes the end of January. The winner of our state competition will represent Washington State at Nationals in April. For more information visit: http://lifesmarts.org/state-competitions/washington/
