The FFGA Youth Essay Contest is aimed at helping students develop financial knowledge using concepts (i.e., how to save wisely, understand how to create and follow a youth spending plan, recognize the importance of paying for your college education) and becoming better prepared for future roles as college students, consumers, savers and investors, and future leaders. In support of Financial Literacy Month, the Financial Fitness Greater Austin (FFGA) Essay Contest encourages middle school and high school students in the Greater Austin area to answer this year’s Youth Essay question.
