Congratulations to the Winners of our NYC Student Poster Contest!

We are proud to announce the winners of the NYC-Metro Area Poster Contest. The Contest asked K-12 students to illustrate a personal finance or economics concept. We received hundreds of entries from across the five boroughs.

Four winners were selected by the CEE Poster Contest Committee – one from each grade band (K-2; 3-5; 6-8 and 9-12) plus honorable mentions. The student winners and their teachers were recognized at a “viewing party” in SoHo where their artwork was on display. The winners each received a $250 AmEx gift card, a certificate, and most importantly recognized for their hard work and creatively. Nan J. Morrison, CEE’s President and CEO presented the awards in front of a studio filled with the students’ families and friends.
