The 2014 Money Smart Week poster contest winners are third grade students Riley Long, East Union Elementary; and Jacy Kralik and Victoria Hiatt, Creston Elementary.

This year’s theme for the Money Smart poster contest was “There is a lot to learn about money, what should you know now?”

Creston Elementary, East Union Elementary and Mayflower Heritage Christian Schools all participated in the event.

Fifty posters were received from students in grades second through fifth.

Of those 50, three winning posters were chosen at the local level.

These three students each won a Kindle e-Reader donated by the following participating banks: First National Bank, Iowa State Savings Bank and PCSB.

All posters will now go to Des Moines for the state judging contest. State prizes for this year are first place, $500 certificate of deposit, and second place, $200 certificate of deposit sponsored by Community Bankers of Iowa. State winners will be announced April 30.
