Quirky signs help member win C-Note photo contest
MADISON, Wis. (5/11/10)--An Oklahoma teenager’s eye for quirky ambiguity led to a $100 win in the most recent C-Note national youth photo contest, which sought examples of funny signs. The contest was hosted by the Credit Union National Association (CUNA).

Cody C., 15, a member of Tinker FCU in Oklahoma City, photographed a road sign that said, “Lodging: Next Right” with another sign for “State Prison” underneath. Cody’s take on the suggested accommodation was, “Hey, let’s stay at the jail! Sounds like fun!” Credit union members age 13 to 19 can participate in the photo contest. Winners are chosen by online votes. Participants can submit their photos to the themed contests year-round to compete for $100, and at the end of the year, winners compete for a $1,000 grand prize. C-Note is a part of CUNA’s Googolplex, which offers three customizable website for youth with interactive games, videos and stories that deal with money matters and life issues. Each site is intended for a specific age group--5-spot for elementary school-aged children; A-J’s for middle-school aged children, and C-Note for high schoolers. For more information, use the links.
