Newcastle Building Society strives to improve financail education within the North East and this year for our Boardroom Challenge we have been working with Gateshead Council and it's schools.
This is an exciting regional competition we run for the benefit of Year 5 pupils. The aim of the challenge is for pupils to create a fundraising idea which will benefit and raise funds for a deserving local charity. This year, 8 schools from Gateshead are going head to head to win £1,000 to help put their idea into action.
Each child involved has been developing skills in finance and marketing and as part of their exercises have created a poster to promote creating a savings habit.
We'd appreciate it if you could help us by voting for whichever poster you think does this best. To do this all you have to do is text 079176033307 with the number of your favourite poster. The winnerof the text votes will receive a special prize to be annoused on the day.
So if you would like to help get on down to your library and post your text winner.
