National Virtual Money Fair – Chance for Youth to win $2000

Go to provincial submission page

What is a virtual money fair

Simply - It's a video of a researched money topic. A Money Fair should be a fun, interesting, and engaging activity for students at home or at school– at the same time as they learn about money and improve their financial literacy and capability.

Virtual Money Fair involves students, either learning at home or in the classroom, selecting a money topic that is of interest to them, undertaking research to explore and learn about that topic, and then preparing a creative and engaging video presentation that showcases the outcome of their research and what they learned. 

We will be getting submissions from across the entire country, posting them on the secure CFEE website and then highlighting the winner announced at the National Money Fair.
