Finance - Cash prizes for primaries
The RBS Personal Finance Education Awards for Schools have been extended this year to include primaries.
Other categories include "best all-round approach", "student award", "teacher award" and "most innovative approach".
RBS created the awards three years ago to raise the profile of personal finance education and spread best practice in this area.
The prizes across all categories are: pound;1,500 for the winning school, pound;500 for runners-up, a laptop for individual winners and iPod shuffles for runners-up.
The competition website offers case studies from previous entrants. Several Scottish schools have enjoyed success in this UK-wide competition, including Trinity High and Corseford School in Renfrewshire, Musselburgh Grammar, and Abercorn School in Glasgow.
The Scottish Centre for Financial Education team at Learning and Teaching Scotland is offering support to any schools interested in entering. The deadline for entries has been extended to April 3.
