DonorsChoose.org is teaming up with the PwC Charitable Foundation to find the most innovative ways to teach financial literacy in the classroom! We are asking teachers to get creative with their classroom project requests – and awarding the most innovative project with a $50,000 DonorsChoose.org gift card!
Our teachers are setting up classroom stores, giving students allowances, creating budgets, and finding tons of imaginative ways to get their students excited about financial literacy. We are very impressed with the project submissions we are seeing thus far, and look forward to all those to come. For the $50,000 grand prize, our expert panel of judges is on the lookout for projects that:
- think outside the piggy bank,
- are focused squarely on the fundamentals of financial literacy, and
- inspire our nation’s youth to start thinking about their financial futures!
Here are all the details you need to know about the PwC Financial Literacy Innovation Contest. DonorsChoose.org and the PwC Charitable Foundation are excited to kick-off this collaboration in such an exciting way!
