Allenstown Elementary students get a lesson in saving


ALLENSTOWN - Second and third graders at Allenstown Elementary School participated in a unique assembly Wednesday, focused on saving for college.

The New Hampshire Higher Education Education Assistance Foundation (NHHEAF) along with the Jump Start Coalition have teamed up to promote higher education at the elementary school level.

Dan Hebert is the State President of the Jump Start Coalition and says the reason we need to start the conversation at the elementary school level is that research shows children become consumers at just seven years old.

Governor Hassan has proclaimed April as Youth Financial Literacy Month.
