Money Mission scholarship winners announced
MADISON, Wis. (4/18/11)--Money Mission’s first scholarship giveaway in late March awarded three Wisconsin high school seniors a total of $12,000 in scholarships. Recipients included:
* Nathan Carpenter, Harbor CU, Green Bay; * Anquette Kirksey, Heartland CU, Madison; and * Obiageli Nwabuzor, Heartland CU.
Each student received a $4,000 scholarship based on an essay they submitted that outlined what they learned from playing the game. Money Mission, offered by 23 credit unions, is an online interactive game that challenges teens to balance their life along with their finances. Money Mission is a partnership between the Wisconsin Credit Union League and the Credit Union National Association. Twenty-three credit unions, including two outside Wisconsin, offer Money Mission.
