I have been a big fan of the National Endowment for Financial Education (NEFE) for some time.  They do great work and introduce innovative ideas.  I love their experimentation with the use of the contest format in their latest initiative “Spending Reality Check”.   I think contests have great potential in this field.   

Check out the  Reality Check Challenge video contest. Its goal is to encourage people to  give their spending a reality check—from wasteful habits that have gotten out of control to past purchases that, in reality, they never use. Contest entrants who submit a video answering the question, “What have you wasted your money on?” will be eligible to win back some of the cash they’ve burned through, ranging from $100 to $1,000. The contest runs April 27 through May 25.
