Maryland is fortunate to be the home of many talented and dedicated educators. The Maryland Council on Economic Education proudly supports the educators and is proud to promote programs and opportunities that recognize and honor inspirational and innovative educators.
Maryland Financial Education and Capability Awards
The Financial Education and Capability Awards Program highlights the dedication and success of public school teachers, school teachers, community champions and outstanding organizations who deliver financial education. Financial Education focuses on a range of financial management concepts and behaviors including budgeting, careers and income, credit, savings financial decision making, and understanding values and habits about money.
Together with the CASH Campaign of Maryland, the Maryland State Department of Education, we are pleased to offer an annual award in each of the following categories. This prestigious award is accompanied by state wide recognition and a $1,000 cash prize.
The award application is available each year in January and winners are recognized each year in the spring.
The 2021 Virtual Financial Education and Capability Awards Program is available here! Congratulations to all of the winners!
