FinCon12 and GoBankingRates.com are teaming up to honor the best personal finance experts in the industry. Following the format of the Olympic Games, participants will compete against each other in qualifying heats by submitting articles that address any of 4 topics, selected by Go Banking Rates staff, then move on to the finals for a chance to win a gold, silver or bronze medal and a $1,000, $250 or $100 cash prize, based on garnering the most votes from readers who enjoy their articles.
We Cordially Invite You to Compete in the Personal Finance Olympics
