CPAs, others take know-how to classrooms




The Cincinnati Enquirer

        About 150 financial professionals will go into 20 Cincinnati classrooms today to play games.

        Accounting for Kids Day will put CPAs and other volunteers into two classrooms in each of 10 grade schools, from 9:45 until just before lunch.

        They'll play an interactive stock market and finance game with students and answer questions about their careers in money management, accounting and other math-intensive fields.

        Then the 600 students are rewarded with a pizza party.

        The purpose, said Chrystal Faulkner, chairperson, is to “encourage children to get excited about math and finance and expose professionals to the rewards of tutoring and mentoring.”
