Jump$tart Washington Classroom Challenge #ImSavingForSweepstakes

Tuesday, February 26, 2019

Jump$tart Washington in cooperation Washington State Treasurer Duane Davidson are launching Jump$tart Washington Classroom Challenge as part of America Saves Week.

How does it work? Simple. For a chance to win a $250 party hosted by State Treasurer Duane Davidson, student savers just need to take the America Saves Pledge and share their goal, personal story, or favorite savings tip on social media with the hashtags #Jump$tartChallenge and #ImSavingForSweepstakes. 

How To Get Started

  • Have students take the America Saves Pledge, tell America Saves what you’re saving for, and make a simple savings plan to reach your goal; AND,
  • Share your tip, story, video or photo featuring your savings goal and that answers at least one of these questions: What are you saving for? What is your savings story and how can it help other people? What is your favorite savings tip or trick?
  • Post it on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter with the hashtags #Jump$tartChallenge and #ImSavingForSweepstakes.
  • Complete the "Classroom Challenge Entry Form" at (or email your submission to with a screen shot of their social media item, including your contact info, school, and city).
