We’re preparing kids for the future. How? By providing scholarships to teens who can manage money and have some fun along the way. By giving teachers the tools they need to engage students in personal finance. By arming parents with the financial advice every teen needs to hear. And more…
We partner with key national nonprofits and economic education organizations to provide scholarships and support.
For the opportunity to win $30,000 in scholarships, young people were invited to host or participate in “Mind On My Money & Money On My Mind” workshops. Along with their friends and peers, students learn about creating a budget, paying for college and responsible credit card use. Three interactive workshops cover these important personal finance topics through fun, lighthearted activities.
What would your friends do to save a few bucks? Challenge them to make a crazy choice to get personal financial tips. “Would You Rather?” uses text messaging to challenge young people about how they’d manage their money, and provides real world financial tips. Invite friends to play and be eligible to win a $3,000 scholarship!
This project has students compete by teaching others the importance of financial literacy while honing their research and presentation skills. The Financial Literacy Promotion Project encourages DECA members to test their financial literacy skills individually or as a team for more than $50,000 in scholarships from H&R Block.
