Christopher Paige, BEAM K5 student, was selected as a Grand Prize Winner of the U.S. Department of Treasury’s “Save Out Loud” Contest.  Christopher won the K-6 photo essay category of the contest and is one of four national Grand Prize Winners who will have the opportunity to meet and converse with Treasurer Rosie Rios during a virtual classroom visit.

BEAM received nice publicity around this win from the Neighborhood News Service. Click to read the article.

Christopher’s adorable photo was selected for its originality, creativity, emotional impact and support of the principle of savings.   The title of Christopher’s photo essay was “Big Time Saver.”  His accomplishment was recognized with a virtual visit from the U.S. Treasurer of the United States, Rosie Rios.  He invited his K5 classmates and the 1st graders to the event.

Christopher wins an engraved plaque with a mounted coin from the U.S. Mint and an autographed dollar bill from the Treasurer.   BEAM also received a beautiful Liberty Bell which will be showcased in our “B&E Square” display case that can be found at the end of Market Place on the first floor.

Way to go, Christopher!
