The Money Jam results are in!




Money Jam was a big hit in schools across the country. While we faced a few obvious challenges along the way, we saw some amazing entries and it was clear to our judges that all the students put a lot of mahi into making their money plans shine. That made it tough to pick the winners, but we’re pleased to announce that the following schools have won prizes.

  • Botany Downs Secondary College (Shraddha Nand)

Interact Planting Day

A tree planting day which allows students to build on their previous environmental efforts and to further extend their positive impact in the wider community.

A special note from the judges:

“We received some incredibly creative and interesting plans from schools around the country. It’s exciting to see students taking a hands on approach to managing money and starting an important conversation about how to get the most out of it.”

 Thank you so much to everyone who got involved in Money Jam, we were really impressed with the quality of all the entries. If you’d like to keep up with the latest from Sorted in Schools, we’d love for you to join us on Facebook. See you soon!
