Youth network seeks schools excelling in fin lit
RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. (4/7/08)--The Richard Myles Johnson (RMJ) Foundation and Redwood, Calif.-based San Mateo CU have partnered with the California and Nevada Youth Involvement Network (CNYIN) to award the network’s first-ever School of the Year Award in June. The winner will be chosen from schools nominated by CNYIN members. In addition, CNYIN is seeking nominations for its annual youth scholarship program. The award was developed to honor a California or Nevada school that has excelled at providing youth financial literacy to its students recently and has specific plans to continue doing so. The winning school will receive the USA Today “Choice is Power” program for the 2008-2009 school year. It also will receive 20 copies of USA Today daily for 32 weeks, a daily lesson plan, and a guide book featuring 12 financial literacy education lessons. The award is sponsored by a grant from the RMJ Foundation, the state foundation for credit unions in California and Nevada, and a contribution from San Mateo CU. “Partnering with the RMJ Foundation and San Mateo CU allows us to recognize schools for their efforts to help make young people become financially aware adults, which we hope will encourage other schools to do the same,” said Marissa Lott, CNYIN board chair and marketing specialist for Farmers Insurance Group FCU, Los Angeles. All CNYIN members are encouraged to nominate a school for the award. Nominations must be submitted by May 16. Applications can be obtained by contacting CNYIN. CNYIN also will award three $500 scholarships to network credit union members. Awards will be given based on the student’s resume of community service and/or extracurricular activities, and an essay on the topic, “What can you or your credit union do to encourage today’s youth to join and take advantage of credit union products and services?” Applications and essays must be submitted to Jenny Casselman at Greater Nevada CU, Carson City, by May 23.
