Iowans Working to Be Money Smart

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

• 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. Check it out at
