Show Your Money Smarts Contest aims to give youth a jump start by equipping them with the power of knowledge to make sound financial choices. Young people have the advantage of time when it comes to investing. The younger you are, the more time you have to save money to invest and the more time you have to find investments that can increase in value.

Learn how to invest wisely in this year's fourth annual online contest. Compete with other youth across the state of Michigan in this online challenge during the entire month of April and win prizes. High scoring youth will be entered into a prize drawing to win $100. 

Start your path to wealth at a young age and learn how to make your money work for you!
