[SOS] Secretary of State Connie Lawson Launches Summer Reading Program
Start Date: 6/9/2014 All Day
End Date: 6/9/2014
Entry Description

Secretary Lawson encourages students to start learning about financial literacy early

INDIANAPOLIS (June 9, 2014) — Today, Secretary of State Connie Lawson launched the Indiana Secretary of State Summer Reading Program.  This program is part of her office’s efforts to teach Hoosiers the importance of financial literacy and smart money management.

 

“As students leave the classroom behind for summer break, it’s time to start thinking about how to maximize the long days,” said Secretary Lawson. “This summer, I encourage students to participate in my summer reading program, geared around the important topic of financial literacy. You are never too young to learn how money and smart decisions affect you.  I hope Hoosier students will learn about smart money management skills and how to apply them to their own lives.”

 

This summer reading program is available at all public libraries and on the Secretary of State website.  While completing the program, students will learn how money works, the importance of saving and how to earn money.  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.

 

To complete the program, students are asked to read the assigned number of books and complete one craft for each topic.  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

 

This program is part of Secretary Lawson’s enhanced focus on financial literacy outreach.  Secretary Lawson works to increase financial literacy in Hoosiers and to educate them about the various types of securities fraud.  The program is funded primarily by fines imposed on violators of securities laws.
