Financial Literacy Challenge from Jackson Charitable Foundation and Discovery Education Inspires Community Collaboration to Win $10,000

The Cha-ChingTM Money Smart Kids Contest enables communities to vote for their school to win $10,000 to use toward critical educator resources to teach kids how to earn, save, spend, and donate.

This national contest encourages elementary school teachers, families, and community members to show their commitment to financial education by voting online daily for their school to receive a prize package featuring:

  • A grant of $10,000 to build a brighter financial future at the winning school.
  • $1,000 to be donated to the charity of the school’s choice.
  • A fun, educational financial literacy event hosted by Discovery Education that brings to life Cha-Ching’s four pillars of financial education – earn, save, spend, and donate.

Participants may enter up to once a day on behalf of their school from now through June 10, 2021. Learn more and vote for your school.

The annual contest builds upon a Jackson Charitable Foundation and Discovery Education educational program – Cha-Ching Money Smart Kids – which provides no-cost resources that build critical life skills in K-6 students through high-quality financial literacy education resources. Launched in 2017, the engaging and fun program offers millions of students the knowledge, tools, and practice they need to make informed financial decisions to reach their goals.

Recognize Financial Literacy month in April by entering your school in the Cha-Ching Money Smart Kids Content and introducing your students to new resources to support the development of critical life skills.
