The National Youth Saving Challenge™, sponsored by GreenPath Debt Solutions, is held during the month of April in conjunction with Youth Month and is hosted by the Credit Union National Association.
By starting youth on the right path setting goals and saving to reach them, the National Youth Saving Challenge helps credit unions build strong, long-term relationships with youth and their families.
This year, 94,466 young members deposited more than $20.5 million into their savings accounts during this national event—with 8,844 of those being new accounts! Read about why credit unions take the challenge.
Participation is FREE. Only affiliated credit unions can participate. Read the full rules and regulations.
Last year we awarded:
- $2,500 in prizes for youth - Through the generous sponsorship support from GreenPath, we’re increasing the number of $100 cash prizes given to participating youth in 2014 from 10 to 25. Thank you, GreenPath, for your sponsorship!
- Nearly $3,000 in prizes for participating credit unions.
