Today marks the official start of Money Smart Week, a public awareness campaign started in 2002 by the Federal Reserve bank in Chicago to help consumers better understand and manage their personal finances.
Each day during Money Smart Week we’ll be bringing you resources and tips on becoming and staying Money Smart. But, since it’s the weekend, let’s kick things off with some fun and games! The Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago is sponsoring a Scavenger Hunt contest to help promote financial literacy. All you have to do is photograph yourself performing various tasks related to Money Smart Week, and you could win a $500 Apple gift card which is not a bad deal for taking a couple of selfies. Now, that’s Money Smart!
