Louisiana Jump$tart "Day at the Capitol 2011"

La. Jump$tart partners were at the State Capitol on Wednesday, April 27th with tables set up in the rotunda to display their financial literacy information for members of the Legislature, other state employees in the capitol and the general public to view.

This Day at the Capitol was a great opportunity to raise awareness that quality personal financial education is essential to ensure that individuals are prepared to manage money, credit, and debt, and to become responsible workers, heads of households, investors, entrepreneurs, business leaders, and citizens.
