Duration: Single Day

It has long been recognized that Americans have a significant deficit in financial literacy. This gap in knowledge has a particularly harmful impact adolescent in families already struggling financially. To help address this gap of financial literacy awareness and education, The Citi Foundation and the National Association for Urban debate is supporting LAMDL to develop and refine the Financial Literacy Debate Series, which uses the motivation and rigor of competitive debate to introduce relevant financial concepts to students in urban areas with concentrated poverty.

Students will participate in a one-day tournament at the University of Southern California showcasing their understanding of financial literacy. The topic for these debates is Resolved: It is a better financial decision to use discretionary income to pay down debt than to use discretionary income to invest in a retirement account.
