6th Graders Learn The Importance Of Managing Money


Sixth graders are learning how to spend money like an adult.

About 100 sixth grade students from Bismarck/Mandan and surrounding communities participated in the "real world."

The Real World Financial Literacy Camp gives kids a hands-on-experience of what it's like to earn money and be responsible with how it's spent.

"So in the future we know how to balance our checks and we know how to afford money and know how much stuff is going to cost in the future," Annabelle Neigum said.

"You're going to eventually get a job and do things like taxes and all of those expenses," Margaret Bjelanovic said.

Some of those real life situations include having extra money to donate to charity, or living check to check.

"You get a speeding ticket so you have to go pay for a speeding ticket and that kind of set me off of my budget," Bjelanovic said.

"I got an opportunity to donate to United Way and I had to go to the hospital," Neigum said.

Today's camp concluded with a special speaker.

Senator Heidi Heitkamp spoke to the students about the importance of managing money.
