Dibble Wins Excellence Award in Financial Literacy Education Award
The Dibble Institute and LifeWise Strategies announce that their collaboration, Money Habitudes: How To Be Rich in Life & Love, has won this year’s Excellence in Financial Literacy Education (EIFLE) Award for Children’s Education Program of the Year in the Financial Responsibility and Decision Making category. Awards were presented at this week’s Annual Conference on Financial Education, held in Orlando.
The EIFLE financial education award is bestowed by the Institute for Financial Literacy. It acknowledges innovation, dedication, and the commitment of those that support financial literacy education. Money Habitudes: How To Be Rich in Life & Love: A curriculum about money and relationships, introduces teens to the human, emotional side of money. With a behavioral economics approach, the teen financial literacy curriculum is an important precursor to financial literacy courses. The engaging personal finance curriculum helps teens identify their personal finance patterns, how these affect their goals and relationships, and ways to use this financial self-assessment to be more successful.
How To Be Rich in Life & Love includes a teacher guide, student workbook journal, CD, posters, and Money Habitudes cards, the foundation of the program. A hands-on teaching tool, Money Habitudes cards are a fun, instructional game that functions as both a financial ice breaker and a money conversation starter. First released in 2003, separate versions of the durable Money Habitudes cards are designed for adults, young adults and teens (high school); an adult version is also available in Spanish. The cards are widely used in programs focused on financial education, asset building, life skills, marriage and relationship education, financial planning, and career counseling.
