Maine Credit Unions Help Young Members Become ”Savings Sleuths” for Credit Union Youth Week


Friday, April 19, 2013

Maine Credit Union Youth Week 2013 is April 21-27! Maine's theme for Credit Union Youth Week is "Be a Savings Sleuth with Maine's Credit Unions" and many  credit unions are holding fun events just for their youngest members!

A number of Maine Credit Unions are also participating in the National Youth Saving Challenge! Held in conjunction with National Credit Union Youth Week, the challenge is held during the entire month of April 2013, and encourages young members to make deposits at their credit unions.  Their efforts will be rewarded, as $100 cash prizes will be given to youth at 10 participating credit unions. 
Last year nearly 146,000 young members deposited $28.5 million into their saving accounts during this national event.  Past lucky winners have included a Maine credit union member - an even better reason for members to visit their local credit union and ask make a deposit during this fun-filled week!
