Competition That Encourages Learning About Money Management

PenChecks Trust and EduNetwork Partners have teamed up for a second year of the Financial Future Challenge, a national program challenging students aged 7–14 to learn money management skills at a young age and create entries into the challenge to teach their peers what they have learned. The program’s website provides a curriculum introducing concepts in savings, spending, investing, and giving, with hands-on group and individual activities. Added this year is an online savings tracker for students to set goals and track their progress along the way. The program challenges students to develop games, books, apps, websites, or other tools to teach their peers the lessons they are learning about money management. The PenChecks Financial Future Challenge will award more than $8,000 in cash prizes to nine winners based on originality, development and description, and creativity and effectiveness of entries. Prizing includes $2,500, plus an iPad to the grand-prize winner; $1,500 for first place; $1,000 for second place; $750 for third place; and $500 each to five runners-up.

Deadline: Program runs through May 31, 2021
