Youth and family events are a significant part of Money Smart Week. Each year, partners reach tens of thousands of kids through schools, libraries, community centers, museums and more. Educational programming spans pre-K through high school and seeks to shape positive attitudes about money. In addition to classroom instruction, kids are exposed to a wide variety of activities including story time at libraries and bookstores, essay contests, interactive ‘real world’ simulations and electronic gaming.
