The 2018 conference will be Nov. 3-5, 2018 at the Hilton Cleveland Downtown. Teacher registration will open in September 2018. To stay up to date on the conference, sign up for our newsletter.
Exhibit at the Conference
One of the most talked about portions of the conference is the exhibit hall. Approximately 50 organizations each year showcase their resources, and each year those resources are gobbled up. Teachers often not only take resources for themselves, but for teachers in their schools who could not make it.
Support a Teacher or the Conference
Each year, the cost for teachers to attend the National Educator Conference is highly subsidized by sponsors. There are two ways you can support a teacher: providing scholarships or supporting the conference.
2017 Friend Sponsors
- Bulls and Bears
- Financial Beginnings
- Jackson Charitable Foundation
As an educator, we often face criticism of our profession. At this conference, the wonderful folks at Jump$tart and all of the supporting sponsors treat teachers like rockstars. (Full blog post.)
Mansfield High School
The highlight of the conference was networking with people from all over the United States that care strongly about teaching our youth about financial literacy. (Full article.)

I would just like to thank you for an amazing conference, once again. This is the 5th conference I have attended at JumpStart … and it is still the best conference I have attended in 30+ years of teaching.
Osseo Senior High School
I had a BLAST this past weekend at the conference and believe I learned more and obtained more useful materials than I have from any conference. I know it will all benefit my students greatly.
Blount County Schools
First and foremost I want to thank you for all the work and time put into the financial conference. I, once again, left the conference feeling refreshed and invigorated to share the ‘wealth’ of knowledge (pun intended) I obtained at the conference.
Simsbury Public Schools
As usual, this year’s conference was very enjoyable and educational. I have been for the past 3 of 4 years, I plan to attend next year as well.

Thank you for providing me with a scholarship for the 2016 JumpStart National Education Conference in Dallas, Texas. The conference was awesome! … This was my first time attending a personal finance conference and I have already started making plans for attending the conference next year in Washington, D.C.

Thank YOU so much! The conference was so amazing and wouldn’t have been possible without my scholarship. There is so much I can bring to my classroom! You are all much appreciated.
