"Financial Football" Teaches High School Students Money Managment

Kentucky's high schools are going to combine finance and football to teach students money management skills.

Financial footbal is a new tool being used to teach high school students about money management.

Kentucky state treasurer Todd Hollenbach spent Tuesday, May 6th tackling the problem of financial literacy among Kentucky teenagers.  Treasurer Hollenbach and Visa Inc. announced a statewide rollout of an effort to improve money management skills of high school students.

The treasurer will be distributing free copies of "Financial Football", which is an interactive money management video game with an NFL theme to every high school and public library in Kentucky.

Treasurer Hollenbach kicked the program off at Central High School in Louisville.  He was assisted by Visa officials and 2008 draft picks Andre Woodson and Brian Brohm.

"Financial Football" is part of Practical Money Skills for Life, a free, award winning, teacher-tested and approved financial education program that is currently available in English, Spanish and Chinese.
