FICB is a financial literacy study program culminating in a college bowl quiz competition. The FICB aligns with statewide learning standards for financial literacy and is an effective strategy to promote learning. The competition features student teams (up to four members and an alternate) competing for trophies and fabulous prizes. All FICB teams are led by adult coaches who help students study and prepare, as a classroom or an after-school activity.
