In the midst of an overwhelming flood of news stories and response to COVID messaging, some of our bank & credit union partners have asked how we can help the students in and outside of their communities with financial literacy in the midst of distance learning.  So I write with Happy News!  

On April 20th, EVERFI will launch the first annual National Financial Bee to inspire financial learning for students across the country in a virtual environment.

This has been a decade-long dream of our CEO, Tom Davidson, but one that our team has pulled together in less than 2 weeks!  We are doing our part to be a first mover in the wake of a global pandemic building a Financial Literacy Month program to motivate and energize kids in financial capability.

Students will complete 5 modules with a capstone essay at the end to compete for up to $10,000 in scholarship awards!  This is our inaugural National Financial Bee, but we intend to be the standard-bearer for this virtual learning opportunity.

We would love to teach you about it, and see whether you might like to help us launch!  We are looking for sponsors to join us by April 15th.
