Do you work in financial literacy? Do you know someone who does? Has your organisation’s financial literacy work been making a difference? If so, you should consider entering the Financial Literacy Australia Awards.
The Awards celebrate and reward organisations and individuals who have advanced financial literacy in Australia.
You could be a school like Wingham High School, which has embedded financial literacy across its curriculum through MoneySmart Teaching and other initiatives and in 2014 won an Outstanding Achievement Award.
Maybe you are a government agency like another of our 2014 Award recipients, Sustainability Victoria, which improved people’s understanding of the running costs of electrical appliances through its Smarter Choice retail program.
Perhaps you work in partnership with a large corporate to deliver financial education across the country; or you could be a small community organisation like Women’s Health Goulburn North East, which created resources to help women better understand financial abuse.
Maybe you are (or know of) an organisation or individual who has made a significant contribution to financial literacy; Like Dr Njau Gitu who has been steadfast in his commitment to raising the level of financial literacy in the African Australian community around Brisbane.
Financial Literacy Australia is keen to recognise good work wherever it is happening. That’s why the Awards are open to all sectors. To find out more visit the Awards section of this website.
In 2015, recipients of Outstanding Achievement Awards in the not-for-profit sector will receive $5,000 towards their financial literacy work.
The Financial Literacy Australia Awards Dinner will be held in Sydney on Thursday 19 November, 2015.
