We are so proud of Holly from Hanford High School in Richland Washington! And a huge thank you to GESA Credit Union for sponsoring her Moonjars!
She took a Moonjar project to her DECA competition and won so she took it to State and she came in 4th so she is taking it to the International DECA competition!! Go Holly Go!!
Here are a couple of her take-aways:
Fewer than 20 states require financial literacy curriculum. States that have more rigorous financial education see higher credit scores after graduation.
Part of the project was to improve chances of students feeling financially secure later in life. To promote this, they encouraged the children to set goals that required a bit of a stretch!
The youngest children seemed to learn most with the hands on activities. The slightly older students, 3rd grade were able to create goals in each Save Spend and Share.
We are so happy it was a success! If anybody else wants to create a school project just let us know!
