North Tama students in second through sixth grade participated in Iowa's Money Smart Week Poster Contest. Community Bankers of Iowa and Farmers Savings Bank of Traer sponsored the campaign. The campaign was designed to increase awareness and promote ways to be financially stable. Posters were sent to Community Bankers of Iowa to be eligible for a $200 prize.
Karly Jans, a sixth grader and daughter of Bryan and Joy Jans of Clutier, was the local winner of $50. Her poster was chosen as the best representative of the theme "There's a lot to learn about money... what should you know now?"
