Quote from the website:
"Now more than ever, our students must be equipped with the financial literacy skills they'll need to control their finances, instead of their finances controlling them," Meisner said. "My hope is that students can use their favorite art form to think in new ways about money and finances, and that we can increase awareness of this critical area."
This art contest is a creative way to engage high school students in Michigan and reward them with money and scholarships for incorporating financial themes into personal works of art. If you are not in the Michigan/Oakland county area, check out your local treasurer's website for possible similar programs.
