April was Credit Union Youth Month. This year the theme was “The Science of Saving”. To celebrate this month for our youth, we encouraged youth age 17 and under to make deposits into their savings account and have a chance to win a Kindle Fire! Every deposit, Transfer, or direct deposit was automatically entered in the drawing.
For our Cub Account members who are age 10 and under, we sent out the Bear Cents newsletter with a coloring page for kids to complete and return for a chance to win another prize. If a deposit was made in person, the Cub Account holder received a drawing slip for more chances to win!
During the month of April, we had 578 deposits into youth savings accounts, we had a total of 94 drawing slips turned in, and we had a total of 50 coloring pages completed and returned!
We chose three winners from each branch for the drawing slips and the coloring pages. Each winner received either a movie pass or a “Dollars and Sense” Berenstain Bears Book. For the grand prize, we chose two winners and they received a Kindle Fire 7!
Congratulations to our winners! Below are a few photos!
