America SavesOkaloosa Saves would like to invite you and your students to participate in the 8th Annual Piggy Bank Pageant. The pageant is a free competition that encourages creativity, competition and teaches children in a fun way, how to save their money.

The challenge:
Each child creates and decorates a bank out any material they choose or they can alter an existing bank. The rules are attached on the registration form. There are also some photos of piggy banks people have created in the past. Each child should name their bank and complete an entry form.

The banks will be on display at the 2014 Eco-Nomic Living Expo, Saturday, February 1st, 2014 at the
