April is Youth Month
Be A Credit Union Saver and your Savings Will Never Go Extinct!

Every child dreams about their future. Some of those dreams may require money to come true. How do you help your children achieve their dreams? One way is to help them learn how to save their money. The theme this year is, “Be a credit union saver and your savings will never go extinct”. If you start with small goals, saving your money can become a regular habit. This year’s Youth Month features a Jurassic theme that makes saving for the future fun and helps younger members appreciate the importance of putting money aside.

SCCU will celebrate National Youth Month with the following:

  • SCCU will deposit the first $5 into each new youth account for the month of April from 0-17. $5 Savings Coupon

  • Every youth deposit made to a youth account during the month of April will be automatically entered into for a chance to win one of four $25 deposits to a youth account and chances to win other great prizes. One entry per day, min deposit $5.00.

During the entire month of April, any child under the age of 18 who makes a deposit to their saving account will be automatically entered into the National Youth Savings Challenge drawing for a chance to win a $100 from the Credit Union National Association (CUNA).

The National Youth Saving Challenge is FREE and open to all youth under 18 who visit a participating credit union during April. While youth are encouraged to make a deposit at the credit union, no deposit is required to enter.
Parents/guardians giving permission for their youth to enter can submit on a 3" x 5" piece of paper the following information to the credit union. Mail to: Soo Co-op Credit Union, National Youth Savings Challenge, 4489 I-75 Business Spur, Sault Ste. Marie, MI 49783.

  • Name
  • Date
  • Current age
  • Limit one entry per person.

Odds of winning depend on the number of entrants. This contest is void where prohibited. In May, the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) will randomly select and give a $1,000 grand prize to a participating credit union. That credit union will then randomly select 10 winners from its entrants. Your credit union will notify you if you are a winner.
