Benton Community Supports -- we need your help for the Financial Literacy Fair


Come Join in the Fun!  

Area 8th graders have the opportunity to participate in a Financial Literacy Fair in May to be held at the Kirkwood Linn County Regional Center right off of Boyson Road in Hiawatha! 

The students will have selected a career and determined their salary and taxes.  They’ll come to the fair to face the reality of monthly bills for all of the necessities (transportation, housing, insurance, savings, food, etc.).   At the end, they’ll meet with a financial counselor one-on-one to discuss their choices on how they spent or saved their salary!

Would you like the opportunity to interact with students?
We are looking for volunteers to help staff the booths.

No experience necessary!  We’ll train you the ½ hour before the students arrive.

You’ll be amazed at the learning that happens this day and the interaction with the students is a blast!  This is a great way to see how we’re working together to prepare students for their future!!
