KCUA Kansas treasurer sponsor money camp
TOPEKA, Kansas (5/8/09)--The Kansas State Treasurer’s office is partnering with Kansas credit unions and others to sponsor a Money$mart Financial Management Camp today at Atchison (Kan.) Middle School. It aims to teach students about the importance of sound personal financial practices. Kansas State Treasurer Dennis McKinney said he believes in the importance of encouraging fiscal responsibility for all Kansans. “One of the biggest advantages we can provide our children is a basic education in finances,” McKinney said. “This outreach educates students on responsible use of a credit card, saving, budgeting and cash management.” The Money$mart camp was created with the Kansas Credit Union Association (KCUA) for Kansas middle school students. Other co-sponsors include Students In Free Enterprise at Wichita State University, and KCUA’s Northeast Chapter of Credit Unions, which worked with the school to make the event possible. Credit unions participating include:
* Bradken CU, Atchison; * CU of Leavenworth County, Lansing; * Eagle FCU, Atchison; * Free State CU, Lawrence; * Frontier Community CU, Leavenworth; * Jayhawk FCU, Lawrence; * Kansas University FCU, Lawrence; * Leavenworth (Kan.) Teachers and Community CU, * McCormick Midwest Employees CU, Atchison; * Meritrust CU, Wichita; * Midwest Regional CU, Kansas City; * USPLK Employees FCU, Leavenworth; and * Wakarusa Valley CU, Lawrence.
Participants in the Money$mart camp will include 120 students in seventh grade.
