Students Celebrate CEE’s 65th Birthday

Students like these have benefited from CEE since its creation in 1948. Since then, it has provided economic education and financial literacy to elementary, middle, and high school students throughout the nation. To do this, over the past 65 years CEE has focused on “educating the educators” and equipping them with the necessary resources so that students like those in the video have the ability to realize their dreams over the next 65 years.
