Entry Description

Secretary of State Connie Lawson holds $mart Indiana Financial Summit

INDIANAPOLIS (April 11, 2014) — Today, Secretary of State Connie Lawson, in partnership with the Indiana Council for Economic Education, is holding the $mart Indiana Financial Literacy Summit.  This professional development event brings together classroom and out of school financial education providers to learn about best practices, strategies and instructional resources in the area of youth financial literacy.  

“Teaching younger generations of Hoosiers how to properly manage their finances is a crucial tool for their future success,” said Secretary Lawson. “This summit brings together educators and leaders to help deliver the best possible content to our children so they may understand how to be financially fit as they enter the adult world.”

Throughout the day, attendees will attend breakout sessions with topics such as financial literacy and student programming, diversify your personal finance teaching portfolio and financial fitness for life.  Secretary of State staff members will present throughout the day.  The keynote speaker will be Dr. Julie Heath, Director of the Economics Center at the University of Cincinnati.

The $mart Indiana Financial Literacy Summit is today from 8:30am to 2:30pm at the Brickyard Crossing Golf and Conference Center at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. For further information on the event, please visit http://www.econed-in.org/smartIndiana-agenda.asp.

The $mart Indiana Financial Literacy Summit is one of many events celebrating Money Smart Week as part of National Financial Literacy Month.  April was established as National Financial Literacy Month to help Americans learn to make wise investments and improve financial literacy skills.  The Indiana Secretary of State’s Securities Division created Indiana Investment Watch to increase financial literacy in Hoosiers and to educate them about the various types of securities fraud.  The program is funded primarily by fines imposed on violators of securities laws.

 

The Indiana Council for Economic Education is an academic outreach program within the Department of Agricultural Economics at Purdue University.  ICEE’s purpose is to prepare students to be active participants in our economy by providing them the skills to make sound economic decisions.  The Indiana Secretary of State’s office and ICEE have long partnered to bring Hoosier teachers and students resources to become financially fit.
