Mary Suiter, assistant vice president and economic education officer at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, said she was honored that the NAEE recognized the work from the economic educators at the St. Louis Fed.

“These awards acknowledge the quality of the free economic and personal finance lessons and resources created by the St. Louis Fed,” Suiter said. “I am privileged to lead the team that creates these wonderful, award-winning products.”

Eight lessons available on Econ Lowdown, the free economic and personal finance resources created at the St. Louis Fed, were given 2016 Gold Curriculum Awards of Excellence:

In addition, the Econ Lowdown lesson 10 FRED Activities in 10 Minutes received a NAEE Bronze Curriculum Award.

The winners from the St. Louis Fed were among 29 submissions to the annual NAEE competition.

The awards were given out earlier this month at the annual NAEE fall conference in Phoenix.
