Digital Badge - Financial Smarts - Cash CourseWhy should I earn a Financial Smarts Badge?

FinancialSmarts digital badges allow students to represent the skills and knowledge acquired through the completion of our financial literacy programs. They are important because they provide evidence to others (possibly future employees!) that you have the responsibility and initiative to take control of your financial future.

Badges can be uploaded to digital portfolios and social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, and they can even be added to email signatures!

The following FinancialSmarts programs offer badges for completion:
