Five Iowa teachers have received scholarships from Iowa Jump$tart to attend the National Jump$tart Educators Conference in National Harbor, Maryland, in November. Scholarship winners are winners Carla Madson of the Urbandale Community School District, April Moffitt of the Emmetsburg Community School District, Jen Snyder of the Colfax-Mingo School District, LaRae Arment of the Alburnett Community School District, and David Becker of the Ottumwa School District. This conference will bring together hundreds of educators from across the country whose work gives students a successful financial future.

“Financial education is critical to the future success of Iowa students. It is also important to equip Iowa teachers with the resources they need for teaching financial literacy,” said Mary Sandvig, president of Iowa Jump$tart. “The National Jump$tart Conference provides a wealth of tools and information to help teachers help their students build a strong foundation when it comes to financial education. At Iowa Jump$tart, we are happy to help Iowa teachers with this scholarship to attend.”

Five scholarships in total were provided by Iowa Jump$tart to Iowa teachers to attend the national conference, which will take place Nov. 6-8. The conference provides preK-12 teachers with financial education resources, personal and professional development and a nationwide network of colleagues supporting financial education.
