Howald Honored with Economics Award

Jennifer Howald, fourth grade teacher at Woods Elementary School, was honored with the 2012 Bessie B. Moore for outstanding economic teaching by Economics Arkansas. Howald was among 12 Arkansas educators recognized by the organization at a gala luncheon on November 8 at the Great Hall of the Clinton Presidential Center in Little Rock.

Howald's winning project was titled “E + E = E2.” Using a popular children’s book as a springboard, 28 fourth grade students learned about the risks and rewards of entrepreneurship and started their own business, the Sweets-N-Sours Howald Shop. 

Each student applied for a position in one of the departments in the classroom. The business department secured a loan. The advertising department produced a skit and song to create a demand, the baking department donned their mixing bowls, the designing department put the finishing touches on the products, and the Packaging Department made the products appealing in the marketplace. At the end of the 2011-12 school year, the class presented their $550 profit to the Ronald McDonald Family Room.

Economics Arkansas launched the Bessie B. Moore Awards program in 1996 to honor exemplary teachers for successfully integrating economic principles into the classroom. The contest is open to educators K-12 from public and independent schools in Arkansas. To enter, teachers submit written descriptions of their projects, which are reviewed and judged by an independent panel of economic education specialists.Winners are awarded an inscribed acrylic and a $1,000 cash prize.
