OneUnited Bank, the nation’s largest black-owned bank and advocate of youth and family financial literacy, is hosting their annual “I Got Bank” National Youth Financial Literacy Contest. This contest encourages students between the ages of 8 and 12 to read their favorite financial literacy book or to write a 250-essay or design an art project that reflects what they learned and how it will apply to their daily lives.
This is the 11th anniversary of the financial literacy contest. Digital and print submissions are currently being accepted until June 30, 2021. The Bank will announce ten winners and award each of them with a $1,000 savings account by August 31, 2021.
The Bank is also providing each contestant, and their family, with a free digital copy of “I Got Bank! What My Granddad Taught Me About Money,” which is authored by Teri Williams, OneUnited Bank President. “Our contest and free book educate children on savings and investments, a profitable business, credit scores and home ownership. We know that educating youth will inspire the entire family!” states Williams. For more information, please visit: www.oneunited.com/book.
