Registration has begun for Hawai‘i LifeSmarts, a free program that prepares students to become smart, savvy consumers. Students in grades 6-12 compete in five key areas: personal finance, health and safety, the environment, technology and consumer rights and responsibilities.

The junior varsity competition for grades 6-8, which is entirely online, opens Oct. 21 and closes Dec. 6, 2019 at 7 p.m. HST. The varsity program for grades 9-12 starts online, then the top four schools participate in an in-person state competition in Honolulu. The winner then goes on to represent Hawai‘i at the National LifeSmarts Championship on the mainland. Last year ‘Iolani School ranked 9th among 39 teams nationwide.

DCCA partners with the Hawaii Credit Union League in sponsoring the program. For more details, call (808) 586-2737 or go to LifeSmartsHawaii.com. To register, go to lifesmarts.org.
