Bank of North Dakota has some exciting news! Their College SAVE 529 Plan is sponsoring the first EVERFI National Financial Bee, a virtual challenge open to students in grades 7-12!
Participating North Dakota students will compete on a national level for EVERFI Scholarships up to $10,000 and can also enter a drawing to receive one of two $529 College SAVE Scholarships. The EVERFI Scholarships are for students in grades 7-10; College SAVE Scholarships are for students in grades 7-12.
How The National Financial Bee Works:
- Your students should sign up for the National Financial Bee.
- Ensure your students complete the five 15-minute lessons on important financial topics by April 30.
- Have your students submit a short essay by May 8 on their biggest financial dream and how they plan to achieve it.
Students in grades 11 and 12 can still complete the modules and submit the essay for the opportunity to win one of the $529 College SAVE Scholarships even though they are not eligible for the EVERFI Scholarships.
Additionally, North Dakota students in grades K-12 and their families have access to a FREE Remote Learning Resources Portal filled with 20+ digital courses on critical topics including financial education, mental wellness, digital wellness, and more. These resources are available for a limited time during this period of widespread school closures. More families are spending time together at home, so it’s a perfect opportunity to spark new conversations that prepare students financially for the future.
