DASH for the STASH is a poster contest that takes place as part of April’s Financial Literacy Month. It is sponsored by the State Securities Administrator and the Investor Protection Institute, a nonprofit organization with the goal of investor education. Here’s what you do:dash logo

Once you answer the questions, you’ll be entered for a chance to win a $1,000 retirement investment!
