A Unique and Winning Approach to Financial Education
Virtual, interactive, author led Sammy Rabbit storytelling and financial education experiences have been a big hit with kids from 6 to 16.
The same was true Tuesday, July 25th, when Team Sammy collaborated with the Florida Prosperity Partnership on a one hour financial education experience for children at the Flagler County Housing Authority (FCHA).
It was revealed that FCHA was the winning agency of the Bright Minds Fresh Ideas Get in the Habit Sammy Rabbit Arts and Finance competition. Their contest entry was prepared by Qualeer Hough, Quamel Hough, and Ta’rious Smith who teamed together to write and illustrate their own Sammy Rabbit Story inspired by the book Sammy's Big Dream.
The special financial education experience was one of several prizes awarded to FCHA.
Below are highlights and visuals that capture the magic and impact of the inspiring educational experience. Soon you will be able to view event in its entirety on Spondulics TV!
Kids Eager to Discover the Answer
Sammy makes the big ask. He pleads with his parents to pay for his field trip to ride the world's first outer space roller coaster and make a big dream come true!
His brother Garbanzo says they should not do it.
Sammy declares he can earn and save half the money or $150 to pay for his field trip.
Garbanzo does not think he can do it. But his sisters believe Sammy can do it. So do the kids in the listening audience at Flagler Housing Authority!
The Dream Turns Into a Nightmare
Kids curious to learn if Sammy can conquer challenges that may prevent him from making his big dream come true, including a haunting nightmare that has his brother telling him he will never be able to do it.
Can Sammy Make Good Money Choices?
Kids find out if Sammy is willing to make some difficult choices so he can save enough money to ride the world's first outer space roller coaster, like say no to spending on ice cream, candy, and baseball caps.
Sammy does it. His plans, goals, hard work, focused saving, and determination pay off.
Kids Enjoy Q&A
Following the reading session, the children were brimming with inquiries concerning money and what it is like being an author. The enthusiasm and eagerness displayed by them proved to be truly inspiring for everyone. This was especially noteworthy because children often hesitate to ask questions.
