The Independent Bankers Association of Texas is seeking nominations for its Teacher Excellence in Financial Literacy Award program, now in its fourth year.
The IBAT Education Foundation-hosted program recognizes elementary, middle school and high school teachers who use innovative, fun and effective methods to teach financial education in the classroom.
The foundation's mission is to build financially literate communities.
Three award recipients from across the state will be selected and each will receive $1,000.
IBAT and local community bankers will recognize the winners during ceremonies at their schools.
The goal of this award program is to celebrate teachers who provide their students with the foundation necessary - understanding savings and credit, how to budget and the importance of making informed decisions - to make sound financial decisions for the rest of their lives.
