'Hill Day' History

Financial Literacy Day on the Hill was introduced in 2003 by the Council for Economic Education, Junior Achievement and the Jump$tart Coalition, with the office of U.S. Senator Daniel K. Akaka serving as the original honorary host. Over the years, “Hill Day” as it’s come to be known, has evolved from a small gathering to a public event that attracts hundreds of participants. The location of the event alternates, each year, between an office location on the House of Representatives side and the Senate side of “the Hill.”

U.S. Representative Rubén Hinojosa (D-TX-15) has served as honorary co-host on the House side since 2005, along with Representative Judy Biggert (R-IL-13). In 2013 Representative Steve Stivers (R-OH-15) took over for Rep. Biggert following her departure from Congress.  U.S. Senators Daniel K. Akaka (D-HI) and Michael Enzi (R-WY) served as honorary co-hosts on the Senate side until Senator Akaka's retirement.  U.S. Sentator Jack Reed (D-RI) joined Senator Enzi as honorary co-host in 2014. The event features a free buffet lunch and the financial literacy exhibits from more than 60 non-profit, for-profit, and government entities.   

Laura Levine, president and CEO of the Jump$tart Coalition, has served as the event emcee each year since 2004, representing the many coalition partners that participate. She has said that Hill Day depicts the best of what Jump$tart is as a coalition—a demonstration of the collective strength of our combined efforts, as well as the unique, individual contribution that each organization makes.
