April is Financial Literacy Month and our students currently enrolled in the government are given a few tips on managing money and personal finances. One lucky CPS student might even be eligible for a $ 2,500 college savings scholarship from Fifth Third Bank and Everfi. This is how it works. After completing a Finance Academy module, students should answer one of the following questions in 300-500 words:
- What are the top three topics you’ve covered or the skills you’ve learned in the Finance Academy? Explain how each of these things will help you now and in the future.
- What are your dreams for the future (college, travel, career, etc.)? Explain how what you learned in the Finance Academy will help you achieve these goals.
- Do you dream of becoming an entrepreneur? How will you relate what you learn in the Finance Academy to the real world? Please give specific examples.
Submissions should be submitted by May 16 here. The winners will be announced by June 18th.
