The Actuarial Foundation’s Building Your Future Wins 2010 EIFLE Award for Curriculum of the Year
SCHAUMBURG, Ill. – (October 13, 2010) – The Institute for Financial Literacy (IFL) awarded The Actuarial Foundation’s Building Your Future the 2010 Excellence in Financial Literacy Education (EIFLE) Award, Curriculum of the Year, in the K-12 General Category. IFL, which created the EIFLE Award to acknowledge innovation, dedication, and a strong commitment to financial literacy education, presented the award to the Foundation during its annual meeting in Boston, October 6.
Upon accepting the award, Eileen C. Streu, executive director, The Actuarial Foundation, posed the question, “What do we risk as a nation if this generation—and generations thereafter—are not financially literate? We effectively lose the nation. Thanks to Building Your Future, and the other materials recognized with EIFLE Awards this year, we are collectively making a difference in the financial literacy of today’s youth and tomorrow’s adults.”
Engaging and informative, Building Your Future gives teens a lifetime of sound personal financial and money management skills, covering topics such as credit cards, loans, taxes, insurance, inflation, and managing bank accounts, to name a few.
High school teachers who would like to receive a free individual set of Building Your Future materials and register for a donated classroom set (25 student books, one set of teacher guides) need to email their name, school name, and school mailing address to Programs@ActFnd.org. Materials can also be downloaded free of charge or ordered at a nominal cost.
