Desjardins award rules forms for 2009 available
MADISON, Wis. (2/10/09)--Entry forms for the Desjardins Youth Financial Education Award recognition program are available. The due date is Sept. 4--earlier than usual. The earlier deadline matches deadlines for two other competitions--Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility and Louise Herring Philosophy in Action awards. Participating leagues will determine the entry deadlines for credit unions and chapters for state-level Desjardins competition judging. Details and entry forms are available on the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) website. Judges rate the entries by:
* Awareness and teacher training; * Youth instruction; * Collaboration; * In-school branch programs; and * Legislative and regulatory advocacy.
Last year’s winner, Sonoma County Grange CU, Santa Rosa, Calif., customized the National Endowment for Financial Education High School Financial Planning Program materials to be relevant to youth and adults in the local community. The credit union also teamed up with the local 4-H and participated in local agricultural events. The program reached more than 5,000 youth, CUNA said. For more information, use the links.
