Financial Literacy Project: Create a Savings Bank

 

Deadline for Entries: April 19, 2021

In honor of April's Financial Literacy Month, we are hosting a design-and-create contest for families and Prek-12 classrooms!

YOU are invited to design and create an actual savings bank and submit a photo of the design. Designs will be entered into a Facebook contest with the winner determined by public votes.

The winning designs will earn some “dough” in the shape of a gift certificate to their favorite pizza restaurant.


Contest details:

Families

  1. Design and create an actual family savings bank. It can be a traditional "piggy" bank, but we challenge you to think outside the box! We've seen a llama, giraffe, Easter egg, and a taco!

    • School(s) Where Students Attend
