Two students to represent Malta at the European Money Quiz in Brussels

Amy Pizzuto from St. Joseph’s School, Sliema and Ryan Vella from De La Salle College have been selected as Malta’s representatives for the European Money Quiz (EMQ), which will be held on 18 and 19 April 2024 in Brussels.

Amy and Ryan were selected after a national quiz organised and supported by the Malta Bankers’ Association (MBA), in collaboration with the Department of Accounting and Business Studies within the Directorate for STEM and VET Programmes, within the Ministry for Education, on the 27 February. This is the fourth time that a local quiz was organised to select the Maltese winners participating in the Brussels final of the EMQ. Around 520 students from 20 schools from state, church, and independent schools, took part simultaneously in the quiz using the Kahoot! platform for schools.

The EMQ forms part of the activities of the European Money Week (EMW), which is held every year in March. The EMQ is the largest European-wide competition that aims at improving financial literacy among students between 13 to 15 years of age. Launched in 2017 under the coordination of the European Banking Federation (EBF) as an initiative to promote financial education by national banking associations in Europe, the EMQ is one of many activities organized in over 30 countries, including Malta, as part of the EMW.

The two students will together participate as Malta’s national team during the EMQ featuring all participating countries, and which is hosted by the EBF in Brussels. The MBA will cover the costs of the flight and accommodation expenses for the students’ trip to Brussels.

Amy and Ryan were declared the national winners as they were the two participants with the highest number of correct answers to the questions in the shortest amount of time.
