Award recipients have demonstrated a commitment to create positive change in the financial behaviors of those they serve, raise awareness about the financial literacy movement, and/or support sustainable financial education programming that continues to benefit people for years to come.
The first National Financial Educators Day took place in 2014, on where financial education instructors across the United States and internationally were recognized.

The objective of National Financial Educators Day is to provide organizations and individuals a set day to honor those champions who have been instrumental in the successful deployment of a financial education initiative.
All nominees that contribute to the financial education movement will receive a customized recognition certificate over financial literacy month. Select individuals will receive a certificate via mail.
"It's the individual educators in communities across the country that are leading the financial literacy movement and helping to push awareness about financial wellness beyond the tipping point," states Vince Shorb, CEO of the National Financial Educators Council. "It is our honor and privilege to recognize those teaching personal finance for their commendable efforts."
