The “Smart Money” conference for teens was a huge success! Hundreds of schools and classrooms and more than 30,000 grade 7-12 students from across Canada joined the livestreams to learn some essential lessons about managing their money. The event targeted the needs of the teenage audience and combined practical advice and tips on savings, investing and developing the right attitude and mindset to get them started down the road towards a lifetime of financial wellness. An interactive game of Kahoot! was woven throughout the session to review key concepts and pitted class against class in a battle for some great prizes.
We are very grateful to all the students and teachers who took part as well as all the education officials and administrators who got behind us in supporting this inaugural event. We received some great feedback and learned a lot from our first-ever national virtual conference, and we are looking forward to offering bigger and better events in the future — stay tuned!
Many teachers have requested a recording of the event to share with their students and colleagues that were unable to attend. The link to the recording and access to the Kahoot! are below:
