NOVA Students Can Win $100 Awards for Learning about Personal Finance

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.

Faculty and staff are asked to encourage students to participate. It is a great opportunity for students to potentially win money towards their educational expenses while building real-life personal financial management skills – knowledge that often influences academic success and retention.

The Official CashContest rules are posted on NOVA’s Financial Literacy Blog. Students may sign up for Financial Avenue online and enter NOVA’s access code, “FinLit” to participate in the contest. The deadline for completing the first course, “Foundations of Money” is 11:59 p.m. on October 18.

NOVA faculty and staff members can complete the courses for their own benefit and to assist students but are not eligible for the awards. In addition to the Financial Avenue courses, a variety of other resources are available on the Financial Literacy Blog.
