Interactive Financial Literacy Seminar Teaches Taxes, Budgeting

Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alabama & GSNCA hosted an interactive financial literacy seminar to prepare girls and leaders to make good financial decisions. Girl Scouts in 7th through 12th grades in Jefferson County schools learned how to complete a W-4, the importance of good credit and how to build it, how to balance and reconcile a checkbook, how to read their paystubs, how to budget and how to file their taxes, and how to plan to withhold taxes as well. Thanks to Sharon Smith of Blue Cross Blue Shield for facilitating the seminar.
