Savings Sleuths

This April, we asked our young members to be Savings Sleuths and "Solve the Mystery" in celebration of National Credit Union Week and National Financial Literacy Months.
 

 

 

 

National Credit Union “Youth Week”

Each year during the April school vacation break, NCFCU celebrates “Youth Week”. Beginning in 2004, the credit union has held this yearly celebration completely free to the public. The annual celebration is packed with fun and excitement geared towards making saving easy and fun for the children.

 

 

They participate in making crafts and planting seeds to watch them grow like their savings. Each child receives a favor bag and everyone who attends is eligible to win the many prizes given away at the conclusion of the event.

 

 

 

Educational Games

 

 

Visa and the National Football League have teamed up to help teach financial concepts with Financial Football, a fast-paced, interactive game that engages students while teaching them money management skills. Teams compete by answering financial questions to earn yardage and score touchdowns.

 

 

Financial Soccer is a fast-paced, multiple-choice question game, testing players’ knowledge of financial management skills as they advance down field, and try to score goals. Educators are encouraged to review and download the lesson modules, at right, before actual game play. If you’re already warmed up and ready to play, click the button above to begin.
