Jackson Charitable Foundation and Discovery Education Launch Third Annual “Cha-Ching Money Smart Kids Contest” to Encourage K-6 Grade Students to Become Financially Empowered Adults

Annual Jackson Charitable Foundation Pledge Contest to Award $10,000 to a Winning School, Plus $1,000 to a Local Charity of Students’ Choice

 Silver Spring, Md. (Friday, September 6, 2019) – Jackson Charitable Foundation, a nonprofit with the mission to advance financial knowledge on a national scale and Discovery Education, the global leader in standards-aligned digital curriculum resources, engaging content and professional learning for K-12 classrooms, today announced the third annual Cha-Ching Money Smart Kids! Contest. Open to elementary school teachers and families of students in grades K-6, entrants take a pledge to teach kids how to earn, save, spend, and donate. Now through Dec. 12, teachers and families can enter the contest for the chance to win $10,000 for their school, plus an additional $1,000 to donate to charity. In addition to cash prizes, the winning school will also receive a fun financial literacy event at their school.

“Working with Discovery Education, the Jackson Charitable Foundation has helped more than three million students across the country understand how money works,” said Danielle Robinson, executive director, Jackson Charitable Foundation. “The steps we take to build financial knowledge as young adults in middle age, and even after we leave the workforce, are just as important as the steps we take as children. The ‘Cha-Ching Money Smart Kids! Contest’ exists so young learners have a fun, engaging path to travel while taking those first steps into financial education.”

Cha-Ching Money Smart Kids! is a financial education program designed to train the next generation of financially empowered adults. The program provides youth with critical 21st century skills by beginning high-quality financial literacy education in elementary school, where it can be fundamentally embedded in core learning experiences at a young age. Available at no cost to classrooms nationwide, the program provides educator resources, family activities, animated videos, and more.

“‘Cha-Ching’ was created as the ‘School House Rock’ for financial literacy. The program’s accessible, digitally immersive, interactive videos help kids learn the basics of financial management and open up a future world of possibilities, which aim to help them make informed financial decisions that support their personal dreams and goals,” said Dr. Alice Wilder, producer of Blues Clues and co-creator of Super WHY! “Kids have choices about how they spend their money, and it’s important for them to know what those choices are starting at an early age.”

Cha-Ching Money Smart Kids! program elements include:
Music Videos and Game — Helping children learn money management concepts with lively cartoon characters from the Cha-Ching band. Storylines spotlight the importance of earning, saving, spending, and donating. They also help reinforce healthy money habits.

Classroom Activities — Providing K-6 educators with standards-aligned activities that pair with music videos to teach students how to be money smart.

Educator Guides — Enhancing educators’ background knowledge of financial literacy to better equip them to facilitate the classroom activities.

Family Activities — Offering parents, families, and communities helpful tools to teach their children how to be money smart.

“We live in an era that has proven to be challenging when considering effective ways to engage young students in active learning,” said Eric Harshbarger, Larry W. Miller Intermediate School Principal, East Muskingum Local Schools, New Concord, Ohio. Larry W. Miller Intermediate School was also the 2018 Cha-Ching Money Smart Kids! Contest winning school. “The program gets great messages across, teaches kids about financial literacy as an important subject, and empowers students to take part in growing their own knowledge base. We’re elated about fun and exciting opportunities to grow money smart adults,” he said.

Launched in April 2017, Cha-Ching Money Smart Kids! amplifies engaging financial literacy content and brings it to classrooms across the United States. Cha-Ching is a cartoon band that features six energetic characters, brought to life in music videos, that help children learn about fundamental money management concepts through the band members’ different approaches to money habits. The original videos were created by Dr. Wilder and feature storylines that spotlight the four key concepts of money: earn, save, spend, and donate. These concepts emphasize the cycle of money and vital choices that are made every day throughout life.

“Discovery Education is proud to lock arms with Jackson Charitable Foundation to transform classrooms, empower teachers, and captivate students as they build the confidence necessary to make sound financial decisions that are critical for success,” said Lori McFarling, senior vice president and chief marketing officer, Discovery Education. “The ‘Cha-Ching Money Smart Kids! Contest’ brings financial literacy concepts to life, supports in-class and at-home instruction, and helps students and families practice the building blocks of sound financial planning. We are delighted to continue the program’s meaningful impact in schools and homes across America.”

USC Shoah Foundation and Discovery Education Award $10,000 in Scholarships and Prizes to 2019 ‘Stronger Than Hate Challenge’ Winners

— Challenge Winners Use ‘Stronger Than Hate’ Grant Awards to Promote Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in California and Pennsylvania School Communities —

Silver Spring, Md. (Thursday, September 5, 2019) – In an effort to spark a social movement against hatred in all forms, USC Shoah Foundation, established by Steven Spielberg after his experience filming “Schindler’s List”— which gave voice to survivors and witnesses of the Holocaust and other genocides through  education and action – and Discovery Education, today announced the Teaching with Testimony 2019 Stronger Than Hate Challenge winners.

Sabrina B. and Sydney B. of Monte Vista High School in Danville, Calif., will receive a $5,000 scholarship for their winning video essay Learning to Love, which aims to inspire their school and community to counter hate. As part of the Grand Prize, Monte Vista High School will use a $3,500 grant to further the fight against hate at their school through an underfunded art program that will help further students’ awareness of their differences through art projects and campaigns. Additional prizes, totaling $1,500, will be awarded to the national second and third place challenge winners, respectively. Winning video essays Choosing Kindness Over Hate and Get Comfortable with Being Uncomfortable were also recorded and shared with school communities in Jeannette and Phoenixville, Pa.

“As an educator, it is vital to prepare students with critical-thinking assignments that challenge harmful stereotypes and empower them to extend their leadership abilities beyond the classroom,” said Anjali Brandeis, a teacher at Monte Vista High School. “I’m proud of my students for understanding the gravity of modeling compassion and reconciliation in today’s society, and I am confident that they will use what they’ve learned from their participation in the ‘Teaching with Testimony Stronger Than Hate Challenge’ to help create a better future.”

The California and Pennsylvania-based student leaders created their video essays with the intention of inspiring a shared passion for human rights and social justice. Stronger Than Hate Challenge Grand Prize winners Sabrina B. and Sydney B. also facilitated a local community speaking event to expand students’ knowledge of the value and importance of diversity, equity and inclusion. “Change starts with the individual decision to do something different,” asserts Sabrina. “Each of us, in our everyday interactions, have the choice to be accepting and nonjudgmental.”

The Stronger Than Hate Challenge encourages students in grades 6-12 to complete research-based and standards-aligned activities, culminating in taking action against hate. The challenge also asks students to capture their journey in a video essay to help them share their message with the world. Teaching with Testimony is rooted in the belief that one person can make a difference. It invites educators, students, parents and communities to create positive action by viewing powerful testimony from survivors and witnesses of genocides to evoke a sense of shared global citizenship and a call to make the world a better place.

In 2018, USC Shoah Foundation launched the Stronger Than Hate initiative to leverage the Institute for Visual History and Education’s more than two decades as a world leader in the field of testimony-based education and research by scaling proven models to address the rising crises of hatred in America and abroad. The Stronger Than Hate initiative serves as a proactive, actionable response to intervene in the cycle of hatred and violence. Programs reach educators, students, policy makers, influencers, and the public via schools, universities, communities, and boardrooms, both virtually and in person around the world.

“USC Shoah Foundation would like to congratulate the 2019 ‘Stronger Than Hate Challenge’ winners and every participant for their vision and effort to promote universal themes of triumph and perseverance,” said USC Shoah Foundation Director of Education Claudia Wiedeman. “‘Teaching with Testimony’ empowers youth with digitally immersive content that counters intolerance and bias, connecting communities with real testimonies that eradicate hate, while building stronger bridges to understanding and love. We are proud to partner with Discovery Education to advance this learning approach in schools across the nation and around the world.”

2019 Stronger than Hate Challenge winners are:
National Second Place Winning Entry: Reagan G. and Robert O. from Jeannette Senior High School in Jeannette, Pa., will receive a $1,000 USD scholarship awarded in the form of a check for their video submission Choosing Kindness Over Hate.

National Third Place Winning Entry: Dannin V., Hannah A., Kiley H. and Madelyn A. from Renaissance Academy in Phoenixville, Pa., will receive a $500 USD scholarship awarded in the form of a check for their video submission Get Comfortable with Being Uncomfortable.

“Discovery Education is proud to be a part of an initiative that encourages students to counter hate through educational development and advancement,” said Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer of Discovery Education Lori McFarling. “The ‘Stronger Than Hate Challenge’ provides students with a safe, inclusive space, and this year’s challenge winners have exceeded our expectations by producing captivating content that promotes the need for equity, inclusion and action in school communities across the country.”

Composed of a series of standards-aligned resources for middle and high-school students, Teaching with Testimony challenges students to employ empathy, build critical-thinking skills, and become inspired to create a brighter future after listening to firsthand accounts from survivors and witnesses of genocide. In addition to being deeply integrated into Discovery Education’s Social Studies Techbook™, the recently introduced Discovery Education Experience and professional learning offerings, Teaching with Testimony includes digitally immersive classroom resources, Virtual Field Trips and activities that provide educators with the tools they need to teach students to respond to injustice and ultimately counter hate.
