Money Jam is an annual competition designed to change how young New Zealanders think about managing money.
As part of Global Money Week (21–27 March), we’re encouraging students to create a plan and budget to support a local community initiative, charity or not-for-profit organisation. There’s $10k in prizes up for grabs to make the four winning ideas happen.
Teachers should enter on behalf of their students and must be from a MoE recognised school and registered for Sorted in Schools. Go to the Terms and Conditions.
The selected winners will each receive $2,500 to donate to their chosen programme/initiative.
Students are encouraged to work in small groups, so teachers can submit multiple entries from the same class. You’ll be asked if you would like to upload more submissions after you upload your first entry to Money Jam.
The activities are designed for a group of 2-8 students.
Entries must be submitted by 2359 pm Friday 08 July 2022
We’ll contact our winners via email before we make the big announcement. Winners will be announced on our website, by email to teachers registered with Sorted in Schools, and in our teacher/kaiako group on Facebook.
