Youth savings month winner holding up her VISA gift card

GLCU is excited to announce the big winner of the Youth Savings Month (YSM) contest, Kiara Y.! On May 18, 2018, Kiara was presented with a $100 Visa gift card after being randomly selected as one of the first 80 Youth Accounts opened during the month of April.

YSM is a program that teaches and encourages kids to develop good financial habits. To coincide with the credit union’s 80th Anniversary, the first 80 Youth Accounts opened during April were entered to win gift cards of varying amounts.

The theme for this year’s YMS was “The Science of Saving". Science has proven that if you start with small goals, saving your money can become a regular habit. This year’s goal was to inspire children to begin saving the money they earn so they can attain their dreams of a happy future.

Together we can help them blast-off toward a bright and wondrous future!
