Vantage Celebrates Young Savers!

We are proud to congratulate the 20 outstanding savers from our Youth Savings Challenge! These twenty members—ages 17 and under—helped us celebrate National Credit Union Youth Month (NCUYM) by practicing responsible saving habits.

To enter our Youth Savings Challenge, children age 10 and under had to make a deposit of $1 or more to their account, while youth ages 11-17 had to make a deposit of $5 or more. Members were automatically entered into the savings promotion based on the deposit amount indicated for their age group, and winners were randomly selected from all eligible entries. Over the course of the month, 7,308 deposits were made by our young members totaling to an astounding $1,223,727.25. Talk about some sensational super-savers!

Vantage Credit Union has deep roots in education, and we make it a priority to spend time teaching our youngest members about the importance of saving money. Besides awarding 20 prizes in our Youth Savings Challenge (ten winners per age category), we have several year-round programs designed to educate about the importance of good financial choices. Our free Money Matters Program teaches smart money management, and we also offer a Secret Savers Club for children age 10 and younger.

Congratulations to our 20 prize winners, and to all of our youth members who made responsible, saving choices during NCUYM! We are so proud of all of our youth members for understanding the importance of saving!
