Isle high schoolers testing their LifeSmarts


Students from three Big Island high schools are competing this weekend for a spot in a national consumer education contest in St. Louis.

The Hawaii LifeSmarts State Competition is set for 9 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 7 at the state Capitol auditorium.

Keaau High School will defend its LifeSmarts Champion title against Hilo, Kealakehe and Farrington high schools. 

The top Hawaii school will advance to the national competition April 25-28 in St. Louis.

LifeSmarts is an educational competition that tests teens nationwide on real-life consumer issues through online quizzes and live contests. Topics include personal finance, health and safety, the environment, technology, and consumer rights and responsibilities.

LifeSmarts is brought to Hawaii by the state Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs and is run by the National Consumers League. Local partners include the Better Business Bureau Foundation, Hawaii Credit Union League and state Department of Education.
