Teachers, students and parents are encouraged to attend the Iowa Financial Literacy Summit on May 5 in Des Moines. The Iowa Department of Education is hosting this event as part of a broader effort to improve Iowa students’ financial literacy skills. The purpose of the summit is to raise awareness that making smart, responsible financial decisions is an important part of a great education; to provide teaching resources to help students meet the financial literacy component of our state standards; and to connect Iowans with community resources and programs that support financial literacy education.

Tickets are available through April 21. For more information, including the summit agenda and registration information, visit https://www.educateiowa.gov/event/iowa-financial-literacy-summit.
