EVERFI National Financial Bee

Welcome to the National Financial Literacy Bee!

The Financial Literacy Bee provides an opportunity for students to have some fun and learn critical financial concepts, all from the comfort of home! In this 30-minute course, you’ll explore short interactive lessons to help you better understand how to save, set financial goals, budget, and invest in your future. Let’s do this!


After completing the course, you will have the opportunity to submit a short essay sharing a financial goal of yours and outlining the steps you plan to take to accomplish that goal based on what you’ve just learned. Students will compete for one of three scholarships:

  • 1st Place: $10,000
  • 2nd Place: $6,000
  • 3rd Place: $4,000

The Financial Literacy Bee is designed for high school students and will be available through April 15, 2021. The scholarship essay contest is open to all students between the ages of 13 and 19 as of April 1, 2021.

Welcome to First Federal Lakewood’s Financial Literacy Bee!

From helping local businesses grow to assisting customers with their financial needs, we’re deeply rooted in giving back to our community. We’re also committed to helping students increase their financial literacy – and that’s why we’re a proud sponsor of the 2021 EVERFI Financial Literacy Bee.

We are offering two $500 prizes* for local high school students, and to enter, students must take the 4-part course and submit a short essay. First Federal Lakewood will then choose two local students to receive scholarships for their education. Don’t forget, this competition runs from April 1-15.
