DuTrac Community Credit Union’s younger members took to heart the theme of “Unleash the Power of Saving at your Credit Union™” to save $1.7 million and win the 2023 National Youth Saving Challenge™. The Credit Union National Association (CUNA) headquartered in Washington, D.C., reported savings of $15.2 million by the nation’s youth during the National Youth Savings Month of April.
DuTrac encouraged younger members to save wisely through the credit union’s scholarships, deposit savings bonus promotions through the Savasaurus Kids Club, financial education, and events for youth members of all ages. CUNA offered a grand prize of $1,000 to create ten (10) youth awards worth $100 each to encourage participation in the program.
DuTrac Community Credit Union of Dubuque, IA was selected the grand-prize winner. DuTrac reported 39 new youth accounts and 7,837 deposits totaling $1.7 million for the month.
