Financial Literacy Arts Contest

The Oakland County Treasurer's Office is pleased to announce the 2022 Financial Literacy Arts contest winners in partnership with Oakland Schools, Flagstar Bank, and the Oakland Livingston Human Services Agency.

Oakland County public high school students were invited to submit 2-D and multi-media/video pieces of art related to the importance of financial empowerment. The contest winners will receive cash prizes from a $10,000 sponsorship by Flagstar Bank.

The 91 student art submissions included an array of mediums including 2-D (drawing, painting, photography, mixed media and illustration) and video. Entries were judged on creativity, artistic execution, and the incorporation of the financial empowerment theme.
