A PICTURE IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS!

Annual Poster Contest for Maryland Students in Grades 1 through 8.

The Maryland Council on Economic Educations annual poster contest for Maryland students in grades 1 through 8 was developed to help teachers stimulate interest in learning basic economic & personal finance concepts by giving students an opportunity to creatively demonstrate their understanding of one of the following economic concepts: scarcity; natural, human and capital resources; opportunity cost; producers and consumers; or goods and services; or personal finance concepts:  savings & Investing, taxes, markets, sources of income and philanthropy.
