Carolina Panthers roll out financial literacy program at Mallard Creek High School

Middle and high school students across North Carolina will soon be introduced to a new type of football – financial football.

Carolina Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams and tight end Greg Olsen met with State Treasurer Janet Cowell at Mallard Creek High School in Charlotte on Tuesday to announce the rollout of an NFL-themed financial literacy program to every public school at those levels in the state.

The game was created by credit card company Visa in partnership with the NFL and a nonprofit called The Collaborative. Teams of students have to answer questions covering everything from setting a budget to how money market accounts work to advance down the field.
