If you are between 13 and 15 years old and live in Europe, then you could have joined us for the first European Money Quiz. The quiz takes place for a first time in 2018 as a Europe-wide competition. Thousands of kids in 30 countries played during March 2018.
The competition takes place in two phases. In March, during or around European Money Week, classrooms can play directly against each other in a live Kahoot! webcast on YouTube. The classroom winning this national money quiz on Kahoot! will be the national champion.
The second phase is the European final, Tuesday 8 May in Brussels. The classrooms that won the national competition will be invited to send a team of two students – and a teacher or parent to accompany them – to Brussels for the European finals. The national banking association in their country will pay for the trip.
So, 60 European finalists – 30 teams of two – will play a live Kahoot! in Brussels directly against each other. Everyone gets to answer the same questions in their own language. The winning team will win a prize for their classroom.
National competitions will take place in the following 30 countries: Albania, Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Liechtenstein, Montenegro, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Serbia, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, and Sweden.
Classrooms in each of these countries could sign up to play against each other simultaneously via the live Kahoot! webcast in March. The classroom that is the smartest and the quickest, the best and fastest provider of the correct answers to 10 to 15 questions was named the national winner.
National banking associations in these countries are actively involved, either as organisers or as partners of national educational authorities supporting the quiz. The banking associations also make possible the participation of their national winner in the European final, offering to pay the cost of travel and accommodation for two students and a chaperone (teacher or parent).
Signing up was done by talking to your teacher. He or she could sign up for the European Money Quiz by contacting the national banking association in your country. Click here for an overview of the national contact points.
