My Money, My Future
My Money, My Future is an exciting project for secondary students hosted by CIBC and the Canadian Foundation for Economic Education (CFEE). Whether teachers are working with students in a quint, quad, or 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. Student work could potentially be showcased on a national stage where a first place entry will receive $10,000!
The My Money, My Future project 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. It can be in either English or French. 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!
Teachers are asked to pre-register a class whether the project will be completed in the Fall or in the new year. Please visit the My Money, My Future site to complete registration and to view last year’s winners.

Below, you will find several resources to help Saskatchewan teachers and students.
- 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.
- The Sask Rubric provides criteria similar to Saskatchewan curriculum. There is a 4 or 5-point scale option and each could be modified to suit a class (e.g. Financial Content worth 4 marks instead of 8, Presentation criteria could be removed, etc.).
- 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.
