During the 2016-2017 academic year, NOVA students who successfully complete Financial Avenue courses will be entered in drawings for forty $100 grants and bookstore gift cards that can be used for educational costs at NOVA. The Financial Aid Office will randomly select winners after each completion period has ended. Each course typically takes about 45 minutes to complete and covers topics such as budgeting, saving, credit cards, loans, financial aid, and employee benefits. Please consider entering the contest! It’s a great opportunity to potentially win money towards your educational expenses while building real-life personal financial management skills!
The Official CashContest rules are posted on NOVA’s Financial Literacy Blog. Students may sign up for Financial Avenue at https://fa.financialavenue.org/sign-up/ and enter NOVA’s access code, “FinLit” to participate in the contest. The deadline for completing the first course, “Foundations of Money” is 11:59pm on October 18, 2016.
In addition to the Financial Avenue courses, a variety of other resources are available on the Financial Literacy Blog.
