Money Jam is a competition designed to change how young New Zealanders think about managing their money.
During Global Money Week (22–28 March), we’re encouraging students to create a plan and budget for a fundraising event – like a market day or talent show – and submit their idea for the chance to win big for your school. There are two major prizes of $2,500 (to bring the two winning experiences to life) AND have Brain Busters hosts Chris Kirk and Mikey Falesiu from TVNZ 2 attend as special guests.
To enter, download the Money Jam resource. Don’t forget to upload your entry before Friday 16 April for the chance to win.

If you are looking for more inspiration, watch how last year’s winners, Ella Buffery and Ashlin Long from Cambridge High School put their winning idea into action – hosting a community movie night screening of Dolittle.
Entries will be judged based on the following criteria:
The description of their fundraising event, why it’s important to them and why they think they should win.
Teachers should enter on behalf of their students and must be from a MoE recognised school and registered for Sorted in Schools.
Submit your entry for the chance to win 1 of 2 events to the value of $2,500 each, plus have Brain Busters hosts Chris Kirk and Mikey Falesiu from TVNZ 2 attend as special guests.
Yes. Get together as a group and brainstorm ideas for your fundraising event. Maybe plan to create a fun event that brings your local community together or an event that showcases student talent or supports a local organisation. The sky's the limit!
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. However, events planned may include anything from a small group of students (i.e. movie night) to your entire school. It’s up to you.
The competition period runs from Monday 8th March 2021. Entries will close at 11.59pm on Friday 16th April 2021.
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.
