Iowa teens can compete in national ‘financial bee’ April 20-24
The Iowa Insurance Division is inviting students in grades 7-10 to participate in the inaugural EVERFI National Financial Bee, taking place April 20-24. The first of its kind nationwide financial literacy challenge provides an opportunity for students to have some fun and learn financial concepts at home while social distancing. The five-day challenge, created by social impact education program EVERFI and supported by leading financial institutions nationwide, features a short daily digital lesson and capstone essay contest in which students will share a financial dream of theirs and how they plan to get there. Winners of the National Financial Bee will receive a total of $20,000 in college scholarships.
