How Money Are You: $1,000 US Treasury Department Quiz

The US Treasury Department is getting on the bandwagon of rewarding kids' knowledge with money and is offering the chance at a $1,000 scholarship for teens who can ace a 35-question financial literacy quiz. This is one educational initiative that's taking a step in the right direction and hopefully it's a sign that finance will become more common in classrooms. The Wall Street Journal got its hands on five sample questions from the National Financial Literacy Challenge, and I've reproduced them here for you to test your knowledge — would your score be worthy of $1,000?
