The H&R Block Budget Challenge: Financial Literacy

September 8, 2014

The H&R Block Budget Challenge has just launched and now teachers can register to win classroom grants and student scholarships.  It’s designed to help kids learn budgeting and financial discipline skills early by presenting financial literacy in a fun and playful context.  Students will be given real-world problems to tackle that they can apply to their own lives.  Teachers can use the lesson plans provided to teach financial literacy while addressing national standards.
