Visa welcomed its Innovative Educator Sponsorship recipients who attended the Jump$tart National Educator Conference in Washington D.C. from November 3–5. Visa hosted a luncheon for the six educators along with Jump$tart board members and sponsored a Financial Football game at a tailgate party for 300 educators at the conference. Former NFL Redskins running back and Super Bowl champ Brian Mitchell joined Visa to coach educators playing a lively game of Financial Football. Visa also distributed free financial literacy resources at the conference’s exhibit hall for educators teaching personal finance to students in grades K-12.
