Are you concerned about debt bunnies? Does your vampire retirement keep you up at night? It might sound like a long shot, but financial entertainment could be the key to enticing individuals to tackle complex money concepts. We've all been there -- lost in an addicting puzzle or game. Now gamers will be able to sharpen their personal knowledge while learning how to maximize their long-term earnings and avoid the pitfalls of high-interest debt.

The National Council of La Raza (NCLR) and the Doorways to Dreams (D2D) Fund have partnered to improve financial knowledge and confidence among American households. Through an online videogame platform, we are bringing a hybrid of entertainment and education to your computer screen. On August 17, we launched a national Farm Blitz tournament to engage our families in this exciting financial education. Join us!

Play and win prizes! Enter the Farm Blitz tournament for a chance to win a variety of awesome prizes! Simply register and play the game -- one lucky grand prize winner will receive an Apple iPad 2! Ten players with the highest scores will each be awarded $50 gift cards, and 50 players will be randomly selected to win $25 gift cards! Read the tournament rules and description on the website and get started on the road to winning prizes, all the while beating back those hungry debt bunnies!
