For Students


A consumer education program and competition for middle and high school students


Upcoming Events

Welcome to LifeSmarts! Here students in grades 9-12 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 is excited to serve as the state coordinating organization.

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.
