HA NOI (VNS)— University students will be able to compete to take on the role of financial literacy experts and guide their peers through basic money management concepts such as saving and budgeting, with the 2013 Practical Money Skills campaign by Visa and the Central Committee of Viet Nam Students' association (CCVSA).
The campaign, which involves a contest for students at eight universities in Ha Noi and HCM City, tests teams on their knowledge of financial literacy and challenges them to come up with the most creative way to share personal money management tips among fellow students.
Participants will be encouraged to use social media and other online tools, together with student-led forums, to reach student communities. To help teams put together their programmes from now until the submission deadline on 11 September 2013, participants are required to organise and host a series of ‘Money 101' seminars on campus where they will be able to try out the feasibility of their ideas and programmes with fellow students. — VNS
