BRUSSELS, 7 May 2019 – Six young students from Slovenia, North-Macedonia and Germany on Tuesday emerged as winners in the 2019 finals of the European Money Quiz, an international financial literacy competition that attracted more than 100.000 students from 28 European countries.
The Slovenian team, represented by students Sanja Feltrin and Zala Kacafura Stanic from the Osnovna Sola Dusana Muniha primary school from Most na Soci emerged as the 2019 European champion, taking over from Poland, which won the competition in 2018 when the European finals were hosted for a first time.
The second place went to Marko Ingjilizov and Viktoria Panova of the Gymnazija Kocho Racin in Veles, in the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, also known as North-Macedonia. The team from Germany, comprising Josias Neumuller and Isabbel Hirschmann, of the Markgraff-Georg-Friedrich Gymnasium in Kulmbach, Bavaria, took third place.
Financial education specialists at national banking associations across Europe, together with the European Banking Federation, launched the European Money Quiz in 2017. The quiz has become a core activity also for European Money Week, the international financial literacy awareness week that takes place every year during the second half of March.
The winning teams in the national finals were all invited by their respective national banking associations to travel to Brussels for the European finals. Nearly 60 students took part in the final stage of the competition.
