Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson believes Hoosiers can start thinking and learning about financial literacy at any age. Therefore, Secretary Lawson established the Indiana Secretary of State Summer Reading Program. The purpose of this reading program is to help elementary age students learn about smart money management skills and apply them to their own lives.
There are two levels of books available: Beginner/Moderate and Moderate/Advanced. Please provide students with the appropriate bookmarks for their reading level.
Several books are part of the Accelerated Reader program. Books marked with an asterisk on the bookmarks have AR points available. Please advise students to refer to the Accelerated Reader website for point values.
Students who complete the reading program and activities above will receive an Honorary Secretary of State certificate signed by Secretary Lawson and a piggy bank. By submitting the information, the student gives the Secretary of State’s office permission to post his or her photos online on our website and on social media pages. All submission documents can be submitted to Kelly Griese at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by mail at 302 West Washington Street, Room E-111, Indianapolis, IN 46204.
