National Financial Bee

Everfi's National Financial Bee logo

CommonWealth Central Credit Union is proud to announce that we are sponsoring the Second EVERFI National Financial Bee*, a nationwide financial capability challenge for students in 7th - 10th grade. This year’s virtual challenge will take place April 1st - 15th, and we want YOU to participate! The National Financial Bee provides an opportunity for students to have some fun and learn critical financial concepts — all from the comfort of home!

As families across the country are struggling financially in the wake of the pandemic, from unemployment to career shifts to a reduction in income, the EVERFI Financial Literacy Bee provides an opportunity for students to learn the critical importance of saving and budgeting for short-term and long-term financial goals.

Each daily lesson covers important financial topics covering everything from savings, investing, income, debt, and more. After completing the lessons, students submit a short capstone essay in which they share their biggest financial dream and outline a plan for how to get there. Three winners of the National Financial Bee will receive up to $10,000 in college scholarships

In addition to the opportunity to receive a scholarship from the National Financial Bee, you’ll be entered to win one of three $500 scholarships1 from CommonWealth! 

Students ages 13 to 18 can participate in just 3 easy steps:
