Distribute the game links to your students. Students commence playing. Students must complete all games including the end-of game quiz and survey by 5.00pm (AEST) Friday, 28 August 2020.

There are no restrictions on the number of classes or participating students from each school, however students may only make a maximum of five (5) attempts at the Suncorp ESSI Money Challenge game (an “attempt” is counted when a participant has logged-in and progressed to “week 2” or further).

PLEASE NOTE: The game will NOT automatically stop students from making more than 5 attempts at the game. It is up to the teacher to enforce this rule.

Any participant making in excess of 5 attempts (combined across all classes) at the Suncorp ESSI Money Challenge 2020 will be disqualified.

To submit a valid Challenge entry, students must complete the ESSI Money game along with all questions in the end-of-game financial literacy quiz and survey.

The Suncorp ESSI Money Challenge 2020 will run from 9.00am (AEST) Monday, 17 August 2020 until 5.00pm (AEST) Friday, 28 August 2020. Students can commence play at any time within this period.

Scores are automatically submitted when students finish the game and quiz. Teachers are not required to submit any further details.
