    MONTPELIER — A statewide poster contest is challenging Vermont students to illustrate ways to effectively save and invest their money.

    For the last six years, the state treasurer’s office and the Vermont Bankers Association have sponsored the Be Money Wi$e Financial Literacy Poster Competition.

    This year’s theme is “I can grow my money by ...”

    The contest is open to students in grades three through 12 and features three grade categories: grades three through five, six through nine, and 10 through 12.

    Top-placing students and their teachers will be recognized at a Statehouse ceremony April 11. Grade division winners each get a $100 cash prize.

    The deadline to submit posters is March 12. For more information, visit www.vermonttreasurer.gov/financial-literacy.
