Talk Money Financial Literacy in Action Awards

Win $2,500 for your school!

Celebrating Global Money Week 2024

“Protect your money, secure your future.” is the official slogan of Global Money Week 2024, and to celebrate, we’re launching the inaugural Talk Money Financial Literacy in Action Awards. These awards recognise and reward teachers who inspire their students to be confident in managing money.

Kindergarten to Year 12 educators are invited to share innovative classroom approaches that help their students engage with, and strengthen their financial literacy skills. Submissions are invited from teachers from all year levels and across learning areas, no matter how big or small the lesson. We encourage submissions that are inclusive of diverse learners and their needs, including students living with disabilities, First Nations peoples, and schools in areas of lower socio-educational advantage.
