Youth Week 2014 Seeking a Theme
MADISON, Wis. (8/21/13)--The Credit Union National Association is asking credit unions  nationwide to help it choose a theme for National Credit Union Youth Week 2014.
 
The week, April 20-26, is CUNA's official designation of an annual, national celebration for credit unions that support youth financial literacy all year long. It's an opportunity to formally acknowledge young members and encourage them to start and maintain a saving habit.
 
Credit unions with ideas for the theme should reply by Aug. 28. The top themes will be voted on in early September. To send a youth week theme, e-mail YWCoordinator@cuna.coop.
 
Themes from past years include:
  • 2013--Savings Sleuth, Solve the Mystery (detective/mustache)
  • 2012--Be a Credit Union Super Saver (superhero)
  • 2011--Money Rocks at My Credit Union (music)
  • 2010--Get in the Saving Game (sports)
  • 2009--The Magic of Saving (magic)
  • 2008--Got Green? Grow it at your credit union (environment)
  • 2007--Stash your cash at the credit union (pirates)
  • 2006--My Money. My credit union
  • 2005--Want it? Save it. Get it.
  • 2004--Youth Make a Difference
  • 2003--Youth Count at Credit Unions
  • 2002--Your future. Your money. Your choice.
April is National Financial Literacy Month, and CUNA's National Youth Saving Challenge will again run the entire month. Credit unions can participate in the challenge either during youth week or during the entire month.
