Stipends available for the Tennessee Jump$tart Personal Financial Education Conference

The Tennessee Department of Commerce & Insurance (TDCI) reminds teachers that stipends are still available to Tennessee K-12 educators seeking to participate in the Tennessee Jump$tart Personal Financial Education Conference on June 7-9, 2017 at the Park Vista Hotel in Gatlinburg.

The annual conference is open to financial educators and practitioners ranging from public, private, and home school teachers, to community organization, non-profit, or business outreach specialists. The conference delivers professional development opportunities for personal finance educators and helps “train the trainers” who leave Gatlinburg and enter classrooms across Tennessee with new ideas and strategies.

To encourage participation in the conference, TDCI will help offset educators’ costs associated by providing stipends to qualifying teachers. Participants can register for the conference here. The stipends will be made available by Jump$tart on a first-come, first-served basis until all spots are filled. The $200 stipends will be provided by Jump$tart at the conclusion of the conference upon successful attendance of the entire conference.
