Enter Your School in Project Financial Literacy for the Chance to Win a $1,000 Scholarship to Help Students

project_fl-logoEnter your school into Project Financial Literacy by March 15 – and you’ll also be eligible for the chance to win one of ten $1,000 scholarships to help your school and students. Scholarships are sponsored by the Iowa Bankers Association and are available to help Iowa schools improve their financial literacy programs or provide scholarships to students.

Providing students with basic financial literacy skills helps to equip them for future success. Project Financial Literacy is designed to promote financial literacy education by providing high schools with an assessment tool, developed by Iowa-based Ednalysis, to help evaluate their financial literacy curriculum. The assessment tool is provided to schools free of charge thanks to the support of local sponsors, including Iowa banks. Upon taking the assessment, teachers and administrators who wish to address areas of improvement identified in the assessment may also utilize staff and resources available from TS Institute.

In addition, schools signed up for the project by March 15 will be eligible for random, regional drawings for one of ten $1,000 scholarships sponsored by the Iowa Bankers Association to improve financial literacy programs or help students. Scholarship award recipients will be announced in early April 2015.

Sign up your school today at www.projectfl.org.
