It’s that time again: graduation season. Millions of 22-year-olds are leaving the comfort of their college campuses and testing the waters of office life and financial independence.
And if you’re feeling some nostalgia for your younger, less experienced and—we’re guessing—pretty financially confused self, we’ve got just the thing for you.
Tell us what you wish you'd known about money when you were 22—whether it’s what compound interest really means and how to take advantage of it, the difference between a 401(k) and IRA, or how to craft a budget you can actually stick to. Share on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #WhatIWishIdKnown between May 24 and June 24. We’ll select a winner each week to receive a free year-long subscription to the LearnVest Program (a $508 value!).
The details: Open only to legal residents of the 50 states and the District of Columbia who are at least 18 years old as of the date of entry. Premium users are not eligible. Contest running from May 24, 2016 through June 24, 2016. Winners will be selected randomly each week. More contest rules here.
