Are you an elementary teacher giving your students money-saving skills?
As part of National Financial Literacy Month, the Comerica Bank branch in downtown Sacramento is offering two Sacramento-area K-6 classrooms a chance to win free piggybanks for every student.
"We want to raise awareness of financial literacy," said Susan Siravo, Comerica's vice president of corporate communications. "It's really important to teach kids the importance of saving and how far you can stretch a dollar."
Siravo said teachers can submit a 100-words-or-less description of a money-managing concept they've been teaching or how they include financial literacy in their classrooms. Two winners will be selected by drawing. Each teacher will receive ceramic, yellow piggybanks for all their students, along with a financial literacy classroom lesson by a Comerica banker.
The deadline to submit an entry is April 30. Winners will be announced the first week of May. For questions, call (916) 491-1329.
