Economic Poster Contest
 

The Economics Poster Contest is a fun, creative way to teach the new standards.  The contest encourages students to understand economics and financial education in an imaginative way.  In the end, students create a colorful art illustration depicting one of the concepts they studied and enter it into our contest.  The winners of the competition are featured in a calendar the following school year. This program is run in the fall each school year.  The cost is FREE to participate. Follow the links below to learn more.

Standards
 

The new Social Studies standards went into effect during the 2017-2018 school year.  For the first time, they include Financial Literacy.  In addition, inquiry skills were added to this group of standards to equip students with the skills necessary for college, career, and civic life.  Please click through the links to read through requirements for each grade level.
