Enter your classroom or community group to win a financial literacy kit

Moonjar Canada's Classroom Kit

Until November 12, educators can enter their classroom or group to win a Moonjar Classroom Kit - a collection of tools for teaching kids the ABCs of financial literacy.

The Moonjar is a fun, visual way to teach children the basics of money management. The lessons boil down to three simple words: spend, save, and share. But, says Moonjar Canada president Brent Dobson, the secret to Moonjar's effectiveness is that it spurs ongoing adult-child conversations about money.
