Welcome to the 2011-2012 LifeSmarts program year!

By Lisa Hertzberg, LifeSmarts Program Director

The pencils are sharpened, the new tennis shoes are squeezing the toes, and students across the country are primed to learn about consumer issues and tackle NCL’s competition about real-life: LifeSmarts.

LifeSmarts introduces middle school and high school students to real-world knowledge they can use now. We quiz them about workers’ rights, managing money, eating well, using technology, and much more.

Students may begin competing today!  Students can practice using the vast array of consumer resources available at lifesmarts.org, including practice quizzes.

Highlights at lifesmarts.org include:

  • TeamSmarts: Monthly 100-question quizzes focus on one topic area. Teams of students can work together and test their smarts against other teams from across the country. Prizes go to the top LifeSmarts and FCCLA teams each month. To warm up, try the practice quiz first (password: practice)

We are excited to kick-off the new LifeSmarts program year today! We expect it will be our best year yet. Join us!
