FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – School District 60 students have a chance to win some money, by learning about it, through the Virtual Money Fair.
According to the Superintendent’s Report for January, schools have already been sent information on the Virtual Fair where students from Grades 4 to 8 select a money topic that they’re interested in.
Once students select their topic, they are to research and learn about it and then prepare a creative and engaging video presentation that helps showcase the information they’ve learned.
The Canadian Foundation for Economic Education (CFEE) will be getting submissions from across the country and posting them to a secure website. The winner will be announced at the Virtual National Money Fair on April 14th.
First place will win $2000, second place $1000 and third place $500.
The contest is limited to students ages 9 to 14 or in grades 4 to 8.
A few other career and skill development Opportunites the district has coming up includes World of Choices for Grades 6 to 12 and JABC TechWorks for Grades 8 to 12.
World of Choices is a mentorship program aimed to support student’s career goals. The program will put students face to face with professionals from around B.C., free of charge.
JABC TechWorks is designed to expose students to B.C.’s dynamic tech sector’s career opportunities, showing them the skills and education required for tech jobs.
