Give Money Advice to Teens

Hey Fools!

You were a teenager once, right? How many times have you said, "If only I knew then what I know now..." or, "If I could just do it all over again"? Wouldn't you be in much better financial shape now if only you'd been given some sound, easy to understand advice during your teen years?

Now's your chance to make a big difference in the lives of our younger Fools, and maybe even have your name and idea appear in our upcoming book, The Motley Fool's Investing for Teens, published by Simon & Schuster.

We're looking for whatever advice you have regarding teens and money. Maybe it's the best way to save money, or how to learn the real value of a dollar. Maybe you have great tips for finding a good job. Perhaps you have some nifty ideas on how to make those hard-earned dollars stretch farther. In short, anything that might be helpful for teens in a financial sense.

If your entry is among the top five, your name and suggestion will appear in the chapter on adults providing advice to teens (with your permission, of course) and you'll receive a free copy of the book. Imagine having your name in one of our best-selling books!

Submissions must be 100-1,000 words in length, and posted on our Teens and Their Money discussion board no later than 5:00 p.m. EST this Monday evening, Dec. 3, when our Foolish judges will turn into pumpkins. Remember, your writing could be preserved for generations in our book, so be as eloquent as you can. Narratives will definitely be favored.
