The AICPA’s 360 Degrees of Financial Literacy program, which educates Americans on important financial topics and issues affecting them at different stages of life, received a gold award for its Web site www.360financialliteracy.org.

Other awards went to two annual reports, three membership marketing brochures and staff orientation and retention videos.
