How does GMW Countdown Challenge work?
GMW Countdown Challenge
will consist of a GMW Calendar which participants can download from the GMW website (it will be available from Friday, 1 February 2019) and build by themselves. The GMW Calendar will include 24 windows, every day participants will open the right window that will include a question related to money matters, so that everyone can learn about financial literacy, history of money, finance and entrepreneurship in a fun and interactive way. Every day participants will be asked to create a short video (max 2 minutes long) and/or a poster (size A4 to A1: you choose) with their answers and post them on their social media.
