My Florida CFO

Estimados Compañeros Floridanos:

When you increase your financial knowledge, it not only increases your potential for financial prosperity, our entire state's economy benefits from smarter consumers and more financially savvy business leaders. That's why as Chief Financial Officer, I have made it a priority to identify and provide financial education resources to Floridians of all ages.

Financial FootballOne of the many tools we use to teach Floridians young and old about creating the conditions for financial prosperity is our Financial Football video game. The game was launched as part of a national education campaign with Visa, the NFL and NFL Players, and it remains especially popular during football season.

Disponible en línea en www.florida.financialfootball.com, Financial Football puts your fiscal knowledge to the test in an online simulation game environment by combining the structure and rules of the NFL with financial education questions of varying difficulty. I hope you will challenge yourself and your friends to this win-win game of Financial Football.

Financial literacy is more than knowing how to open a bank account, use credit responsibly or plan for retirement. It is about taking control of your financial future. For more financial literacy resources, please visit our Your Money Matters website.
