General linear model procedures were used to investigate the association between financial behavior and sources of financial information, the association between savings and investing knowledge and financial information sources, and the association between financial behavior and savings and investing knowledge. The study participants were 253 teenagers aged 14 to 19 who attended a state-wide 4-H event in Georgia in December 2006. Setting financial goals and saving some or all of their earnings were associated with obtaining more financial information from parents. Having spending plans was associated with using the media/Internet as information sources. White teens reported obtaining less information from the media/Internet and educators than did nonWhites.
