MADISON, Wis. (9/20/12)--Credit union staff and youth nationwide can provide their input on the 2013 theme for National Credit Union Youth Week, which will be celebrated April 21-27.
Through this annual celebration, credit unions can build relationships with new and existing young members. Each year's theme is selected as a result of a nationwide poll and promotes saving in a fun, engaging way to help youth start their financial life off on the right foot, said the Credit Union National Association (CUNA).
This year's theme semi-finalists are:
- Money Quest--Begin at the Credit Union (medieval/fantasy adventure theme);
- Peace, Love & Savings (1960s/70s theme);
- Savings Sleuth: A Credit Union Mystery (detective theme); and
- 'Stache Your Cash at a Credit Union (mustache theme).
"We value the theme input we receive from youth and credit union staff alike," said Joanne Sepich, CUNA's Youth Week coordinator. "It's important to us that the theme resonates with what young credit union members enjoy so they are engaged in their credit union's celebration of Youth Week."
Voting is open through Sept. 25. The chosen theme will be used to create celebration materials for credit unions, posters and free downloadable materials.
