Save some green: Financial Literacy offers poster competition

March 21, 2018

Students are now able to sign up to compete for prizes in a poster session on financial literacy and sustainability on April 19.

The Penn State Financial Literacy and Wellness Center hopes to blend together ideas for financial literacy and sustainability, and explore how those two aims can be achieved in the settings of student housing, office and classroom, just to name a few.

Students who wish to enter the competition must create a poster made of recyclable materials on the topic “Saving money as you’re saving the environment,” and can register through Eventbrite.

Posters should be delivered by 9 a.m. April 19 to the HUB room 229. Participants should be present from 4:30 to 6 p.m., when light refreshments will be served and general judging completed. The top three judges’ choices will then have 5 minutes to present their poster ideas and an overall winner will be selected.

The top three selections will all be awarded Amazon gift cards in the amounts of $100, $75 and $50. Entries are limited to one poster per student and the competition is open to all students. Students can register to participate until April 18.

The Financial Literacy and Wellness Center offers services to the entire Penn State Community and is part of Penn State Undergraduate Education, the academic administrative unit that provides leadership and coordination for University-wide programs and initiatives in support of undergraduate teaching and learning at Penn State.
