The European Money Week is an annual initiative to promote financial education across Europe, organised by Europe-wide national bank associations, with the coordination of the European Banking Federation from Brussels. Each year, during March, hundreds of activities are held in over 30 countries, with a view to promoting financial literacy in Europe. The European Money Week will be celebrated on 23-27 March 2020, and the Association of Serbian Banks will, traditionally, join this initiative by organising appropriate activities in cooperation with the banks.
The European Money Quiz, as a project within the European Money Week, was first organised in 2018, at the initiative of the European Banking Federation and its members - national bank associations. The competition was conducted throughout Europe with the aim of increasing financial literacy of 13 to 15-year-olds. The quiz has attracted thousands of children from around 30 countries. The Association of Serbian Banks, with the support of the Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development of the Republic of Serbia, enabled the implementation of this project in Serbia - the quiz was successfully conducted for the first time in 2018, and the preparations for the competition in 2020 are currently underway.
The competition will take place in two phases. The first phase is the national competition, where pupils will compete in the quiz by playing it online, using the Kahoot!. The two best ranked pupils who win the national competition on 17 March 2020 will be invited to the European Finals of the European Money Quiz that will be held on 28-29 April 2020 in Brussels. The Association of Serbian Banks will enable the participation of the national competition winners at the European Finals, covering the travel and accommodation expenses for two pupils and their mentors.
In cooperation with the Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development of the RS, we invite pupils who want to participate in the national competition to apply for participation. Rules, practice tests and guides for teachers will be posted on our website.
