MAD CITY MONEY SIMULATION

TEENS LEARN REAL SKILLS FOR MANAGING MONEY

Carthage, TX - On Saturday, January 27, 2018, Excellent TEEN Choice will host a free, hands-on money management workshop called Mad City Money.™

From 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 pm at the Panola County Annex (Old Sammy Brown Library, 522 W. College Street, Carthage, Tx), Teens, grades 7th - 12th, will be transported into the future where they will have instant families, careers, and bills to pay. Teens will have lots of choices to make, as they move from station to station to purchase housing, transportation, food, clothing, day care, and other necessities. The simulation also includes: a mall for “wants”; a pushy car salesperson; a commission-based realtor and several other merchants, and “The Fickle Finger of Fate.”

During the Mad City Money simulation, students are able to stay engaged as they are required to use their knowledge of money, math skills, and feelings about important life choices. Most importantly this free event is a fun way to learn and experiment with making mistakes in a safe environment.

Mad City Money ™ is a free event where teens will be able to enjoy snacks and other refreshments. Spaces are limited and participants must registration is closes on January 22, 2018.
