First Techs U-Turn Challenge prize is 10000
BEAVERTON, Ore. (12/3/08)--First Tech CU is running a promotion in which households seeking to make a “U-turn” in their financial lives can participate in the First Tech U-Turn Challenge and compete for a $10,000 grand prize. The prize goes to the household that achieves the most financial success in four pre-determined categories: debt reduction, savings increase, overall net-worth increase, and overall level of participation. The First Tech-selected households will participate in the challenge through 2009, documenting their financial successes and challenges on their blogs posted on the challenge website. Participating households will be assigned a team of First Tech financial experts, who will help them get on track to achieve a better financial life and potentially win the competition. The First Tech team will focus on every aspect of a household’s financial situation, including budgeting, managing credit, home buying, paying for college, planning for retirement, insuring for the future and more. First Tech is a $1.849 billion asset, Beaverton, Ore.-based credit union.
