My Money, My Future
Scroll below for instruction resources!
My Money, My Future (MMMF) provides a template for an engaging summative project for secondary students. Whether teachers are working with students in a semestered class or even if students are learning at home, this project is a fun way for youth to explore a topic of interest and share their learning with an audience.
My Money, My Future challenges youth to draw upon their creativity, talents, skills, and passion to create a new resource that could be used to teach other youth about money and how to achieve a healthy financial future. The resource can be a video, a podcast, a play, a booklet, a PowerPoint presentation, a whiteboard animation, a song, a piece of art, an ad, a poem, a website, a video game, an app; the possibilities are wide open!

- The Judges’ Rubric is what will be used to evaluate projects that are submitted for the national competition. It could certainly be used as a classroom assessment tool.
- Rubrics could also be adjusted for classroom evaluation to match a specific module’s outcome and indicators more closely.
- Student planning & assessment tools include: a planning guide/organizer, research sheets, and a self-assessment.
- The Parent Permission form is to be used by teachers to request information required to submit projects from a class. If a project is to be shared online by the organizing committee, separate parental permission will be requested.
