Michigan Financial Literacy Challenge has lawmakers interest
PLYMOUTH, Mich. (3/19/09)--More than two dozen lawmakers have expressed interest in partnering with credit unions for the Michigan Credit Union League’s (MCUL) Financial Literacy Legislative Challenge, an April initiative that pairs lawmakers with schools and credit unions in their district for financial education events. Credit unions holding events in April can contact MCUL, to be matched with a legislator. About 27 state legislators have responded (Michigan Monitor March 16). In its sixth year, the program helps build relationships between credit unions and lawmakers through collaborative financial education presentations to students or visits to student-run credit union branches. The challenge takes place throughout April to coincide with National Financial Literacy Month. The third week in April is National Credit Union Youth Week as well as Michigan's Money Smart Week--an initiative of the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago.
