Visa, NFL and PA Agencies Showcase Financial Football
On October 2nd in Philadelphia, NFL Pro Bowler, Super Bowl champion and Eagles’ strong safety Malcolm Jenkins, joined the Pennsylvania Department of Banking and Securities, the Pennsylvania Department of Education, the Pennsylvania State Treasury and Visa in an effort to help high school students sharpen their fiscal skills through the statewide expansion of Visa’s Financial Football video game.
Successfully launched in Pennsylvania in 2012, Financial Football has been used by thousands across the state in homes and classrooms. The Department of Banking and Securities and the Department of Education, along with the State Treasury, collaborated to renew and expand the statewide program, which includes an online component for all Pennsylvanians.
At Bodine High School, representatives from each department and Jenkins rolled up their sleeves and faced off with teams of students in a hard-fought, high energy game of Financial Football. Jenkins shared his personal experiences on the importance of money management with students.
