Two first-year students from Dublin, Daniel Olusegun (13) and Darragh McCourty (13), are set to fly the flag for Ireland as they bid to become European champions in the finals of the European Money Quiz 2019, a European-wide financial education competition.

The competition aims to promote financial literacy among students aged between 13-15 years. In March, BPFI hosted the Irish heats of the quiz when more than 800 students in classrooms across Ireland played the quiz simultaneously in an innovative real time Kahoot! Webcast on YouTube. Students, in teams of two, had to answer a range of financial education-related questions with the winner being the team to answer the most correct questions in the fastest time.

As winners of the Irish heat Daniel and Darragh will now travel to Brussels to represent Ireland in the European final on May 7th, where teams from 28 countries play directly against each other in a live final.
