Money Smart Week
Money Smart Week is a public awareness campaign designed to help consumers better manage their personal finances. This is achieved through the collaboration and coordination effort of organizations across the country including businesses, financial institutions, schools, libraries, not-for-profits, government agencies and the media. These groups come together once a year to stress the importance of financial literacy, inform consumers about where they can help and provide free educational seminars and activities throughout the week. The effort was created by the Federal Reserve of Chicago in 2002 and West Virginia joined in 2009.
