Money Smart Kids

It is not just about piggy banks anymore for some Topeka middle school students. Today, they learned all about responsible money management. Sixth, seventh and eighth grade students from USD 501 and 437 participated in the Money Smart Financial Management Camp.

They learned about responsible financial practices including how to budget their money and the difference between cash and credit.

Chris Gurske, of the Educational Credit Union, said it is never to early to teach kids about money.

The event was put together by the Kansas State Treasurer's Office, the Kansas Credit Union Association and the Capital Chapter of Credit Unions.
