PUPILS FROM SERBIA READY FOR THE EUROPEAN MONEY QUIZ FINALS


The 13-to-15-year old pupils representing 25 European countries will meet in Brussels on Tuesday, 8 May 2018, to join the first-ever finals of the European Money Quiz. They qualified for the European finals by winning their respective national finals, in an international competition that has attracted over 40 thousand participants across Europe. Serbia will be represented by Nikola Bajat and Marko Mijailović, the eight-grade pupils from the Elementary School “Duško Radović“ in Belgrade, who won the national competition organized by the Association of Serbian Banks, competing against 77 classrooms from 51 schools in Serbia.

The European Money Quiz is a financial literacy competition designed and implemented by the national banking associations across Europe, under coordination of the European Banking Federation. National finals were held during March and April, with classrooms in the participating countries playing directly against each other via the Kahoot! online learning platform.

The finals will gather the participants from Albania, Austria, Belgium, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Liechtenstein, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Serbia, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden. The winners of the Brussels finals will be crowned as the 2018 European Money Quiz Champion and will receive a cash prize of 3,000 EUR which their school can spend on a financial literacy project.

“We need to enable young people to get ready for their financial future by testing and challenging them,” says Wim Mijs, Chief Executive Officer of the European Banking Federation. “That is exactly what the European Money Quiz does. It’s a fun and innovative way of teaching financial literacy. This quiz is a fun way to learn about money and personal finance, both for students and for teachers.”

To help the pupils prepare for the quiz, the organizing banking associations have created practice quizzes in 22 languages. The Association of Serbian Banks, accordingly, prepared several practice quizzes in Serbian. These are designed to help students test their skills and insights and determine their readiness to manage personal finances. Moreover, teachers can use these ‘Kahoots!’ as a fun element in financial literacy classes, in line with the financial literacy project that the Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development of the Republic of Serbia recently launched in cooperation with its partners, including the Association of Serbian Banks.
