Test for the US Deptmartment of the Treasury

HSLDA--Financial Literacy Challenge Opportunity

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

HSLDA recently learned that the U.S. Department of the Treasury has
launched its 2010 National Financial Capability Challenge. This
recognition program uses a voluntary, online test to determine and
recognize high levels of financial literacy among America's high
school students in public, private, and homeschool programs.

The U.S. Department of the Treasury has asked for HSLDA's help in
getting this test into the hands of homeschoolers. High scoring
students will receive awards from the U.S. Treasury Department, and a
select group of outstanding schools and educators will be recognized.
This recognition is competitive and will look very good on a job
resume or high school transcript.

To register for this challenge, please visit
http://challenge.treas.gov/. You can then register for
the test. Please note that the deadline to register is Monday, March
1, 2010.

Students must be between the ages of 13 and 19 years old. There are
no prerequisites for student participation, and there is no charge to
participate.

We hope that your homeschool program can benefit from this unique
opportunity.

Sincerely yours,

Mike Smith
HSLDA President
