 “Unleash the Power of Savings” 

 Join us this April as credit unions across the country encourage youth to start saving regularly.

During the month of April, each eligible youth under 18, who either opens a new share account with a deposit of $25 or deposits $25 in their existing share account in person, will be enter into a drawing for a $25 deposit into their BKCU share account. Four winners will be drawn. BKCU will deposit the first $5 into all new youth accounts. With each new account a BKCU piggy bank will also be given.

BKCU youth members are encouraged to enter “Unleash the Power of Savings” coloring contest. One winner in each category, ages 0-3 years, ages 4-6 years and ages 7-9 years, will receive a $20.00 deposit into their BKCU share account. Entry forms are available in the office and are due back by May 9th. Winners will be announced May 10th.
