4th Grade - Financial Literacy Contest WINNERS!

A few months ago, the University of Cincinnati held a contest promoting financial literacy for the university's Economics Center.  The contest was to submit a drawing representing one of four financial literacy concepts, and Reading was lucky enough to have not one but TWO winners out of the 150 entries!  A huge congratulations to fourth graders Jaedyn Estes from Hilltop and Andrew Bush from Central for the awards.  Both artists received a 25 dollar cash prize and an invitation to a very nice luncheon attended by lots of important financial leaders in Cincinnati, including the mayor, the CEO of General Electric, and local news anchor Katherine Nero.  It really was quite an experience for all of us in attendance, plus the cheesecake was delicious.

Take a look at some pictures from the event.  We were deep in the corner, so my picture of Jaedyn and Andrew onstage isn't very good, but I'll post more as soon as I get a link from the event.  Once again, congratulations, guys!

Being recognized.

Congrats again!
