Minnesota Vikings’ Greenway, State Treasurer Fitzgerald to Unveil Financial Football Curriculum at Lincoln High School
Lincoln High School will host Minnesota Vikings’ linebacker and former Iowa Hawkeye Chad Greenway and Iowa State Treasurer Michael Fitzgerald who will introduce a new Financial Football video game and classroom curriculum being distributed to every public middle and high school in the state of Iowa.
The event will be held:
Thursday, April 26
Lincoln High School – Main Library
2600 SW 9th Street
Between 40 and 50 Lincoln High School students will participate in the Financial Football demonstration. Greenway and Fitzgerald will lead two teams of students in competition.
This launch is part of a national educational campaign with Visa, the NFL and NFL PLAYERS, now in its seventh season. Since 2006, Visa has reached agreements with thirty-four states and the District of Columbia to distribute Financial Football to every high school and middle school in those states.
Financial Football helps students and adults tackle their financial futures. The game incorporates lessons taught through Practical Money Skills for Life (www.practicalmoneyskills.com), a free, award-winning money management program.
