Financially Savvy Island Student Wins Cash

Office of the Attorney General

Attorney General Gerard Greenan announced today in the Legislative Assembly that Isaac Williams of Bonshaw has won a $750 scholarship for proving his financial fitness savvy.

The Bluefield High School student participated in the “Financial Fitness Challenge,” an on-line contest featuring questions and information on budgeting, saving and investing. Student winners were randomly selected from eligible quiz participants.

“It is very important for young people to develop good financial habits. They are approaching an age where they will soon be responsible for earning and handling their own money,” said Minister Greenan. “This contest provides a fun tool to help them learn about financial matters of particular interest to them.”

The “Financial Fitness Challenge” is sponsored annually by the Canadian Securities Administrators and is administered locally through the Prince Edward Island Securities Office, Office of the Attorney General. More information about the fitness challenge, and other money matters of interest to young people, can be found at the website:
