DollarWise Summer Youth Jobs Contest

Each year, the U.S. Conference of Mayors hosts the Summer Youth Jobs Contest to help youth in summer jobs learn how to manage their money, while winning prizes for their participation. Youth are invited to complete online financial education modules that cover topics such as budgeting, banking, credit and debit cards, navigating a FAFSA for student loans, and more.

While unfortunately DollarWise will not be holding prize raffles in 2020 due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, DollarWise will make the online financial education modules and the final comprehensive exam available for use. 2020 Personalized Final exam completion certificates will also be made available to those who complete the Final Exam with 80% accuracy.

Summer Youth Jobs Contest Final Exam

After completing each of the six modules, youth have the opportunity to answer a set of additional financial education questions that will further test their knowledge on the contest material. Please see the Summer Youth Contest study guide below, which contains all of the information needed to successfully complete the exam. All youth who score an 80% or higher on the exam will receive their official personalized DollarWise Certificate of Completion (in PDF format). Please note that you can only attempt the exam twice, so youth are encouraged to read through the study guide carefully.
