Children, their parents and guardians are running out of time if they want to participate in this year’s San Diego Council on Literacy’s Financial Literacy Superheroes Competition.
Would-be graphic artists from throughout the county are invited to submit graphic art entries that are comic-book themed and include a financial literacy message. Cash prizes are up to $1,000.
Deadline to enter is March 31.
“Getting kids excited about financial literacy can be challenging, but it’s incredibly important to an individual’s long-term success, so we developed this competition with a fun focus on mediums that families love – comics and superheroes,” said, Jose Cruz, CEO of the San Diego Council on Literacy in a statement. “Through this artistic approach, we can spark family conversations on key critical money management skills, like the importance of saving or borrowing wisely.”
