Arizona Financial Face-Off (AFF) is a personal finance-focused competition which attracts the entire
family by having a variety of components that will interest everyone! The competition is open to all schools/groups Tucson and its surrounding area who have hosted Take Charge Cats workshops in personal finance.
Q: What is AFF?
A: AFF is the end of the year competition that we host to
see which school is the most financially savvy! Teams compete in numerous games to test their knowledge of the key concepts that we have taught them throughout the year and then apply their skills to tackle a real world scenario. Presentations are given in front of industry professionals and based on their performance of the entire day, the winner of AFF is crowned!
Q: Why participate in AFF?
A: Did I mention there is a grand prize for the winning team? All participating schools will receive a prize and a chance to win at our annual raffle, but thanks to our sponsors, the champions receive a very generous amount of money to take back to their school! The team that best understands and applies the core concepts of personal finance, walks away with the big check.
Q: Who can participate?
A: Schools and/or teams of at least 5 students who have had our 4 core workshops (Spending Plans,
Savings, Credit Reports, Credit Cards) and an additional workshop on "How to Win AFF", are eligible to compete in AFF. AFF is open to both middle school and high school students as the competition is a great balance of brawn and brainpower.
Q: When is AFF?
A: AFF will be held on Saturday, April 23rd at Dodge Middle School. It is an all-day event and is jam-packed with a fun, competitive spirit!
Apply by March 18th!
Q. How much does it cost?
A: AFF is free! Team shirts and lunch are all provided as well. The only thing required of schools to bring is a great attitude and come prepared to win.
Thank you to our Sponsors!
