Benefits: Economics Arkansas
Draws: When all tickets are sold.
Economics Arkansas (through the Arkansas Council on Economic Education) is a private, non-profit, non-partisan, educational organization founded in 1962 by Dr. Bessie B. Moore to promote economic literacy in Arkansas.
The mission of Economics Arkansas is to promote economic literacy and the economic-way of thinking to PreK-12 students in Arkansas by empowering educators to teach the fourth “r,” real life economics.
Real life economics teaches students:
- To invest in their human capital, opening opportunities to the American Dream.
- Decision-making skills and the costs associated with each decision.
- Financial skills to better manage their resources in the future.
- About the global market and their future roles as producers and consumers.
Economic education is real life, because all young people will grow up and become part of the marketplace. Economics Arkansas provides resources and training to PreK-12 teachers in both public and independent schools in Arkansas. Our belief is that through training teachers, the multiplier effect is achieved. Each school year, the training a teacher receives through Economics Arkansas can impact new children.
Our vision is to create a state of people with the real life skills they need to succeed: to think and choose responsibly as individuals, consumers, savers, investors, citizens, members of the workforce, and to be effective participants in both their local communities and the global economy. Economic literacy is essential to improve the standard of living for all Arkansans, and essential to increase economic development opportunities for Arkansas.
