This month, I’ll been traveling across the state for Money Smart Week. We will have some great events going on this year, thanks to enthusiastic organizers.
There’s something for everyone…
• We have two contests for kids–a poster contest for grades 2-6 and an essay contest for grades 6-8. And, we’ll take “Ben Franklin” into elementary schools to tell why “a penny saved is a penny earned.”
•We are hosting the “Great Piggy Bank Savers” pageant at several banks and credit unions. To learn more, check out www.EveryoneCanSave.org.
• We’ll have two statewide conferences focused on saving and investing skills. The conferences are a great venue to get unbiased knowledge about stocks, real estate, annuities, on-line investing tools, and more. Teachers can even earn one credit for coming.
