2021 Youth Month
We are taking our young members on a Jurassic journey to financial wellness.
Teaching kids about financial literacy early in life is key to helping them develop lifelong, healthy money habits that make their dreams possible. This year’s kid-friendly theme, “Be a Credit Union Saver and Your Savings Will Never Go Extinct,” emphasizes the benefits of wise saving habits using fun dinosaur characters. This celebration is a great time to engage kids and to help them develop healthy money habits.
Check out our ongoing activities for your child:

National Credit Union Savings Challenge
CUNA will randomly select a credit union to receive $1,000 to be awarded as ten (10) $100 prizes to 10 young savers for participating in the Saving Challenge.
The National Youth Saving Challenge is FREE and open to all youth under 18 who visit a participating credit union during April. While youth are encouraged to make a deposit at the credit union, no deposit is required to enter.
Parents/guardians giving permission for their youth to enter can submit on a 3" x 5" piece of paper the following information to the credit union:
- Current age
Limit one entry per person.
Odds of winning depend on number of entrants. This contest is void where prohibited.
In May, the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) will randomly select and give a $1,000 grand prize to a participating credit union. That credit union will then randomly select 10 winners from its entrants. Your credit union will notify you if you are a winner.
