The Financial Education and Capability Awards Program highlight the dedication and success of public school teachers and community champions. Recognition of public school teachers is tied to the Maryland State Curriculum for Personal Financial Literacy Education, which was created under the leadership of the Maryland State Department of Education and mandated for implementation in local school systems beginning in September of 2011.
Awards are given in the following categories:
Elementary School Teacher or Program
Middle School Teacher or Program
High School Teacher or Program
Community Champion Award
Outstanding Organization Award
In April 2023, OneMain Financial and the Woodside Foundation provided three teachers and two community activists with a cash award of $1,000 to each recipient. The application for next year's award will be posted in December 2023.
