Join us in celebrating National Youth Savings Month
What kind of saver is your child? One who saves happily, or with a scowl? To find out, stop by one of our JAXFCU branches during National Credit Union Youth Month.
We give a hoot!
Every saver is unique, but most people who save regularly developed the habit early in life. Learning to delay gratification in order to save for long-term goals is a crucial life skill, and one Jax Federal Credit Union is committed to helping our youngest members develop.
That’s why we create programs and services designed specifically for young people. One of those is our Youth Month programming. Every member under the age of 18 who makes a deposit during April’s National Youth Savings Challenge will be entered to will a grand prize of $1,000!
By helping your child give a hoot about saving now, you’ll help them soar when they’re older.
After April, continue to encourage savings and talk to your children about money. Our Coindexter Kids Club account keeps it fun with access to a cool online virtual world of Econopolis. Kids learn how to earn, save, spend and invest money at their own pace while learning valuable money lessons.
JAXFCU Coindexter Kids Club members can enter our Youth Month Coloring contest! Simply download the coloring page, print it out, and have your kids color it. When they’re done, bring it into your favorite branch. Bring your kids along; it’s a great opportunity to teach them how to make a deposit!
Entries are due by Saturday, April 29, 2017. A winner will be selected at each JAXFCU branch and notified by phone.
National Youth Saving Challenge – Rules
The National Youth Saving Challenge is FREE and open to all youth under 18 who visit a participating credit union during April. While youth are encouraged to make a deposit at the credit union, no deposit is required to enter.
Parents/guardians giving permission for their youth to enter can submit on a 3″ x 5″ piece of paper the following information to the credit union:
- Current age
Limit one entry per person.
Odds of winning depend on number of entrants. This contest is void where prohibited.
In May, the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) will randomly select and give a $1,000 grand prize to a participating credit union. That credit union will then randomly select a winner from its entrants. Your credit union will notify you if you are a winner.
