Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson on Monday launched her Summer Reading Program, part of her office's efforts to teach Hoosiers the importance of financial literacy and smart money management. Secretary Lawson says you are never too young to learn how money and smart decisions effect you and hopes students will take time this summer to learn about smart money management skills an dhow to apply them to their own lives. In the program, students are provided a list of books by topic and a list of activities to complete once they have read the required number of books.
Upon completion, students are asked to submit their book list and completed activities that demonstrate growth in financial literacy. Students who complete the Secretary of State Summer Reading Program will receive a piggy bank and an Honorary Secretary of State certificate signed by Secretary Lawson. All submissions must be received by August 1, 2014. Secretary Lawson will then post copies of the students’ projects and crafts to her website and social media pages.
Information about the program can be found at the Indiana Secretary of State’s website at in.gov/sos/summerreadingprogram
The Summer Reading Program is available at all public libraries and on the Secretary of State website.
