10th Annual Fostering Financial Education in Maine Schools Conference

Join us for the 10th Annual Fostering Financial Education in Maine Schools Conference, Maine's premiere financial education event for K-12 educators, higher education professionals, counselors, and community educators. Register now and you'll receive extensive financial education resources and best practices delivered by classroom teachers, national experts, and statewide financial education organizations. The conference also includes a track for K-8 educators, and exhibitors will also be on hand to share their resources and expertise.    


In celebration of our 10th anniversary we are offering an optional pre-conference event! The pre-conference will feature state and national financial education leaders, followed by networking and dinner, where we will reflect on critical personal finance issues of the past 10 years and contemplate what to expect in the next 10 years. The pre-conference event was made possible by Town & Country Federal Credit Union.

Hotel accommodations will be covered by Maine Jumpstart, however, this opportunity is limited and will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis, with priority given to classroom teachers, in particular those who are more than 100 miles from Augusta, as well as first-time attendees.
