Winners of the 2008 "Be Money Wise" Poster Contest
The purpose of the contest is to introduce young people to the concept of financial literacy, and allow them to express their understanding of it through art. This year, Springboard received more than 80 entries from Riverside County students ranging from 3rd to 12th grade. Springboard’s panel of judges selected one winner from each of the three grade-specific categories. Posters were judged on expression of theme, artwork, style, content and overall creativity. The winning grade-specific entries were sent on to be judged at the national level by the National Foundation for Consumer Credit Counseling. Additionally, Springboard recognized one standout entry as its Chairman’s Award Winner. Each winner was recognized at the Springboard’s annual board meeting on May 1, and each winner was awarded a trophy, certificate and $100 savings bond from Springboard.
