Lincoln National Bank employees spoke to about 200 students from Abraham Lincoln and Hodgenville Elementary Schools on April 24.
Employees discussed the importance of saving as part of the ABA Education Foundation’s Teach Children to Save program.
The Teach Children to Save program uses lessons that bring together real life and classroom learning, incorporating hands-on scenarios and children’s experiences to help them understand the basic principles of using money wisely. Lessons explore saving, budgeting, prioritizing and more.
Teach Children to Save is a national campaign of volunteer bankers who since 1997 have helped young people develop lifelong savings habits. It includes an annual awareness day, Teach Children to Save Day, a video contest and website, www.teachchildrentosave.coms.
