The Hong Kong Financial Literacy Championship 2023 is organised by Hong Kong Economic Journal Education, co-organised by the Education Bureau and the Hong Kong Monetary Authority, supported by Hong Kong Education City, partnered with St. James’ Settlement and sponsored by Visa. The Championship targets to help young people to acquire knowledge about digital and sustainable economy to equip themselves with crucial financial skills and values, unlocking their potential of being future talents for the financial industry.
This year the Championship comes in two formats, online quiz and Young Financial Talent Runway. Depending on their situation, schools can join either the online quiz or Young Financial Talent Runway, or both. For the online quiz, infographics on financial management knowledge will be deployed in some questions, with an aim to help students learn more effectively and with fun. Apart from the online quiz, the newly added Young Financial Talent Runway is a contest requiring schools to nominate students who are interested in developing their career in the financial industry to join the contest in teams. The contest provides the participants with various opportunities such as visiting financial institutions, attending sharing by industry representatives on career path and opportunity in the financial sector, entry requirements, as well as personal financial management skills and values that the candidates should possess. 10 shortlisted school teams will be invited to give analysis for the cases provided by the organizer and present their idea to the panel of judges to compete for various awards.
We encourage all secondary school students to participate. Please visit the website of Hong Kong Financial Literacy Championship 2023 to learn more.
