The Money Jar

Welcome to The Money JAR, a weekly show about Kids and Money, brought to you by Junior Achievement. Along with a cadre of guest experts, show hosts Evan Wilson and Todd Yuzuriha pair their unique perspectives with a mild dose of humor as they attempt to demystify the common challenges all families face while trying to educate their children on the economics of life. From the pros and cons of weekly allowances to strategies for saving $25,000 by the age of 25, our show is designed to be a practical catalyst for meaningful dialog, helping families to begin ongoing conversations around the ever-illusive subjects of financial literacy, entrepreneurship and being ready for the workforce ahead.

Esports has seen massive growth in popularity in the past two years, both inside of its community and outside. 46 million people watched the League of Legends championship last year, and the 2017 World Championship in Poland had 173,000 live attendees, 100,000 more than the Superbowl. With this growth in audience, more students are looking into Esports as a path to education. Today, the Money JAR team speaks with semi-professional Esports athlete Parker Thompson about how video games can lead to money for college through tournament winnings, sponsorships and contracts, and the realities of being an Esports athlete. Parker focuses on Shadowverse, a digital Collectable Card Game, and is a Sophomore at BYU.
