Calling all K-12 classroom teachers! Enter our video contest for a chance to win $1,000 and one complimentary registration to our annual conference. CEE will conduct an online video contest during the 2013 Financial Literacy Month (April 1- 30).
Teachers: What is your most creative idea for implementing personal finance into the classroom?
During Financial Literacy Month (FLM), when CEE raises awareness for the importance of financial literacy education, we’re looking for creative ideas from K-12 teachers on how you incorporate these concepts in the classroom. You should record yourself explaining or demonstrating (in 30 seconds or less) a specific lesson, activity or project. Think of this as an ‘elevator pitch’ for your best lesson, original idea or creative spin on an existing concept.
Need inspiration? Watch CEE’s Doug Young as he uses the board game ‘Look Out Wall Street!‘ to teach the bulls and bears of personal finance.
Submit your video(s) beginning April 1 at 9:00am EST through Sunday, April 14 at 11:59pm EST.
Public voting for entries begins Tuesday, April 16 at 9:00am EST and ends Monday, April 29 at 11:59pm EST.
Two ‘Grand Prizes’ will be awarded on April 30, and all videos will be featured on CEE’s websites and Facebook pages.

The winner of the Viewers’ Choice award will receive a $1,000 American Express gift card for classroom use and one complimentary registration ($125 value) to CEE’s 52nd Annual Financial Literacy and Economic Education Conference in Baltimore, MD in October.
