This year we received 170 applications for 10 scholarships to the Jump$tart National Educator Conference. HSFPP educators shared stories that shine a light on the lifelong impact financial education can have for teens.
The winning stories demonstrated that financial education is not only a powerful tool to help students prepare for the future they expect, but it can also change their expectations of what is possible.
The 10 winning stories of impact are shared in two parts:
Part 1: Empowering Low-Income Students to Plan for a Better Future
The number of inspirational stories shared through the scholarship application far exceeded the 10 winning submissions.
To celebrate more of our educators, NEFE will share a teacher story each Tuesday on our Facebook page.
