The Mississippi Jump$tart Coalition is actively engaged in the following projects.
"LIGHTS, CAMERA, SAVE!"
BancorpSouth is proud to sponsor the 2011 American Bankers’ Association “Lights, Camera, Save!” Financial Literacy Short Film Competition. Participating students have the opportunity to win prizes on the local and national level, and that’s not all. The teachers of the winning students will also win gift cards of $75, $50 and $25.
The accompanying Poster and Information Packet will tell you all you need to know about the “Lights, Camera, Save!” competition. Please place the Poster in a conspicuous place around your school in order for interested students, ages 13-18, to be a part of this Financial Literacy competition. The deadline to have a completed DVD sent to BancorpSouth is November 1, 2011, so please make this information available soon.
Congratulations to the two educators Mississippi Jump$tart is sponsoring to the 2011 National Educator Conference in Washington, D.C. November 4-6: Debra Breland of Long Beach High School and Tracey Watts of Ridgeland High School. Thanks to all applicants.
