In August, MCEE recognizes the outstanding, on-going support of 3M. 3M has long been a partner of MCEE by supporting the yearly 3M Economic Educator Awards, the Annual Conference on Teaching Economics & Personal Finance, as well as general operating support.

3M's dedication to supporting initiatives that have a real impact in communities is seen in their continued support of MCEE's programs and mission. Since 1975, 3M has shown their commitment to education with their Economic Educator Awards, recognizing the truly transformational power that talented and dedicated teachers have in shaping the lives of young people. MCEE is continually grateful for 3M's support for the teachers and students of Minnesota.
