NASHVILLE (AP) – The Tennessee Treasury Department is hosting a financial literacy summit for teachers next week in Nashville.

The summit for kindergarten through eighth-grade teachers will be held on March 22 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Ezell Center on the campus of Lipscomb University.

The free event is being sponsored by the Tennessee Financial Literacy Commission, which is emphasizing the teaching of financial literacy skills to students at young ages in hopes they will develop and follow good habits later in life.

The summit will also stress the importance of reaching out to students' parents to help them develop good financial literacy skills and recognize the need to save for their children's college education.

Teachers attending the summit will receive a $50 gift card from Amazon.

To register online, teachers can visit tnflc.com.
