Students and educators who participated in the National Financial Capability Challenge visited the New York Stock Exchange on April 30 to tour the facility and ring The Closing Bell.
The visit was part of the Obama Administration’s ongoing activities during National Financial Literacy Month. Earlier in the week, Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner and Education Secretary Arne Duncan honored the outstanding achievement of many of the participating students in a recognition event at the Treasury Department.
The delegation visiting the New York Stock Exchange was comprised of students and educators from the New York/New Jersey/Connecticut area. They were joined by Michelle Greene, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Financial Education and Financial Access, U.S. Department of the Treasury.
