In partnership with the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, Economics Arkansas produces an annual art invitational to create an economic concept calendar. Students in Kindergarten through 8th grade take out their crayons and colored pencils to submit drawings of economic concepts they’ve learned in the classroom. The artwork submitted is carefully reviewed for accuracy in depicting the economic concept selected plus artistic creativity. Drawings chosen are reproduced in a calendar format and distributed to donors and educators statewide. Winners and their teacher advisors win cash awards, plus a copy of the calendar.
The 2017-18 Economics Concept Calendar is now available for viewing and downloading.
