MADISON, Wis. (11/22/11)--Credit union staff and youth nationwide chose "Be a Credit Union Super Saver" as the 2012 theme for National Credit Union Youth Week, which will be celebrated April 22-28.
The "Super Saver" theme draws upon the powers of superheroes that also apply to saving at a credit union, such as plotting a savings plan and acting it out, protecting and monitoring money and drawing upon resources at the credit union in order to be strong savers and smart spenders.
Balcaitis said the superheroes theme can work in multiple ways. "It not only encourages them to be Super Savers, but it can be a great opportunity for credit unions to demonstrate how they are superheroes in their own communities," she said.
In keeping with the Super Saver theme, the 2012 Youth Week poster employs comic book-inspired design and bright primary colors. The poster and related artwork will be available online in January. For updates on Youth Week, credit union staff may sign up for a free e-newsletter.
