Finances? What is that?
NATIONAL ART COMPETITION
We invite kindergartens to participate in the competition!
The competition is dedicated to preschool children in order to raise their curiosity about finance from the earliest possible age by promoting basic financial knowledge in an accessible way and by encouraging teachers to make the youngest children interested in this topic during their classes. The format adopted, involving a lesson and artwork produced by the pupils will bring the youngest children closer to the basics of the world of finance in a friendly manner.
As the Institute of Finance, we recognise the need to create positive financial attitudes from the earliest years of life. The adopted form of the art competition is aimed at providing children with the elemental knowledge in the field of finance in a friendly and, hopefully, creative way. Raising their interest in the topic will help them to grow into more aware citizens in the future, who will be to manage their budgets sustainably and sensibly. The prize in the competition comprises both educational packages for the kindergartens as well as individual gifts for the authors of the winning works – emphasises Łukasz Chrobak, Director of the Institute of Finance.
Teachers receive a worksheet from the Organiser including ideas for the implementation in their classes – the materials constitute merely an inspiration, which can be freely modified and extended as they wish.
On the basis of the introduced issues, children create an art project summarising the topic of finance – their associations and remembered concepts according to the teacher’s instructions. We kindly ask to enable children to do the artwork during class with the teacher.
The projects in A3 or A4 format can be made using any technique, e.g. crayons, paints or other art materials (we recommend not using loose materials), except photographs.
The teacher selects a maximum of 5 projects per group, and the kindergartens that have decided to take part in the competition send their works collectively (in one shipment the works of all the groups from a given institution) to the address of the Institute of Finance.
In order to join the competition, it is necessary to submit the online application form and send the art projects by post to the following address: Instytut Finansów, ul. Świętokrzyska 12, 00-916 Warsaw with annotation – “art competition”
The condition for entering the competition is to complete the online application form and send the completed artwork by post to the address: Instytut Finansów, ul. Świętokrzyska 12, 00-91, Warsaw, with the note “art competition”.
The competition runs from 3 November to 10 November 2022. However, the Organiser reserves the right to extend the deadline.

Our Competition Committee will award a distinction to 10 submitted projects, from which it will select the 3.
