Financial Literacy Poster Contest Winners

Students had to show why they were going to become millionaires.

On Tuesday, I helped judge the National Foundation for Credit Counseling's Financial Literacy Poster Contest. Elementary, middle, and high school students submitted over 4,000 posters, all illustrating the theme of why they are going to be millionaires. (Becoming a chef or a fashion designer were two popular answers from the high school crowd.)

Here is part of the winning poster for middle school, created by Jessica Shenoi of Tulsa, Oklahoma:
