Youth Week Financial Literacy Month
Wednesday, June 15, 2011
South Carolina Federal Credit Union adopted the national theme of My Credit Union Rock$ for the annual celebration of Youth Week in April. Youth members were encouraged to make a deposit of $10 or more during the week-long event. Prizes of guitar sunglasses and pens were given out to each participant. In addition to the traditional celebration of Youth Week, South Carolina Federal also offered a special promotion in celebration of Financial Literacy Month. Teachers who mentioned they had heard about the promotion on a local radio program would receive a $100 check for their classroom. The campaign resulted in 30 free financial education seminars presented to more than 400 students across the Lowcountry.
