LifeSmarts 2016–2017 "Learn it, Live it!"
Welcome to LifeSmarts! Here you’ll learn about consumer issues that impact your everyday life – everything from managing your finances, making smart consumer choices, understanding technology, staying healthy, and helping the environment – all with the goal of putting you in charge.
South Central Service Cooperative (SCSC) is excited to serve as the state coordinating organization for the 2016-17 LifeSmarts season. Coaches are invited to register and create teams, and students may register and compete online. We hope that you’ll check out the resources you find here, test your knowledge with practice quizzes, use TeamSmarts and LifeSmarts U, and compete online. Contact Karen Olson at SCSC (507-327-6191) or visit the LifeSmarts’ website.
Middle school dates are the same. Top-scoring state teams will gain recognition from the National Consumers League, and in a few states teams have the opportunity to compete in live state competitions.
