Winners of National Youth Week saving challenge announced
MADISON, Wis. (5/5/08)--Ten credit unions participating in this year's Fifth Annual National Youth Saving Challenge as part of National Youth Week last week were selected randomly to receive $100 each from the Credit Union National Association (CUNA). Winners are:
* Advance Financial FCU, Schererville, Ind.; * Fort Sill FCU in Fort Sill, Okla. * Good Shepherd CU in Lincoln Park, Mich.; * Horizon Community CU in Green Bay, Wis.; * Kansas Blue Cross Blue Shield CU in Topeka, Kan.; * M-C FCU in Danville, Pa.; * Members First CU in Columbus, Ohio; * Sandia Area FCU in Albuquerque, N.M.; * Sikorsky Financial CU in Stratford, Conn.; and * Sun FCU in Maumee, Ohio.
Through the saving challenge, credit unions sought to motivate youth and their parents to become more active users of credit union services. Participants tallied the total amount of deposits, number of new accounts opened and total number of deposits made by youth during the week. CUNA sponsored the event. Young members deposited nearly $11.8 million in their savings accounts throughout the week.
