JOLIET – On April 26, the Office for Economic Education at the University of St. Francis honored the winners of the “Economics and Financial Literacy Concepts” poster contest.

Regional first- through eighth-grade students were challenged to demonstrate their understanding of a financial or economic concept with a color drawing.

More than 700 entries were received from 24 classrooms in
13 schools from around the region. Students, teachers, administrators and families of the winners were present to receive their awards.

Winning entries were then sent to the state competition, where four students won first place and five received honorable mentions. The first-place winners’ entries will be featured as a month in the 2018 calendar.

The competition was hosted by Econ Illinois and sponsored by Country Financial.
