Bank sponsoring Financial Literacy Bee

German American Bank announced Wednesday its sponsorship of this year’s EVERFI Financial Literacy Bee from April 1 to 15.

The financial literacy course, first offered in 2020, is available for students and their parents and features an essay scholarship contest open to students ages 13 to 18.

Those submitting an essay have the opportunity to win a college scholarship up to $10,000.

New this year, the bank will be awarding an additional $2,000 to winners within its market area. Four winners will be chosen, two in Indiana and two in Kentucky, with each to receive a $500 savings account.

Anyone can take the virtual challenge, created by social impact education innovator EVERFI, featuring four short digital lessons followed by a capstone essay contest in which students share a short-term or long-term savings goal and outline their plan to achieve that goal.
