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.
Sixteen (16) state winners will each receive $50.00. Their winning poster will then be used as one of the featured drawings for each month in the calendar. One additional winner will receive $100. This year’s winner drawing will be featured as the cover of the calendar.
Winning posters will be made into a September, 2017-December, 2018 calendar.
