The theme for MFEC’s 2017 Poster Contest is “Needs and Wants.”
Submissions are due Friday, October 28, 2016.
Encourage the children in your classroom, kindergarten through fifth grade, to contemplate the concept of managing their money responsibly by distinguishing between their wants and needs. Winning submissions will be featured in MFEC’s 2017 Calendar!
In “Needs and Wants,” creativity is highly encouraged. Children must illustrate their understanding of the important concept that a person’s needs and wants must both come from one source – their income – and it is not an unlimited source. Remember to use a lot of fun colors and fill the space!
- Needs – things that we need to survive
- Wants – things that we would like to have
