PwC and DonorsChoose.org want to reward all high-school educators who teach financial literacy in their classrooms! From now until December 20th, we would like to invite our teachers to submit a 1-3 minute video demonstrating how you bring financial education to life in your classroom. In return for your dedication to teaching financial literacy, all teachers who submit applications will receive a $100 DonorsChoose.org gift code. Finalists will be announced from February 7-14, 2014.
For ideas on ways to incorporate financial literacy into your classroom, check out the following resources:
