Brandon, Manitoba – Sunrise Credit Union awarded $1,400 to youth in Western Manitoba through its Financial Literacy Month contest in November.

The contest saw youth across Sunrise Credit Union communities complete activity sheets to learn more about Borrowing Money, Making Money, Saving Money and Spending Money. Sheets returned to Sunrise Credit Union were entered into the contest, and 14 branches gave away a $100 deposit into a HeadStart Plan 24 account to one winner from their community.

Sunrise Credit Union’s HeadStart Plan 24 account is specifically designed as a ‘first’ account for ages 0-18. It is an excellent way for young members to start saving while learning the ins and outs of depositing and withdrawing money, collecting interest, and saving for the future.

The winners in Sunrise Credit Union’s 2020 Financial Literacy Month contest were:

Damiano – Baldur
Quinn – Brandon
Cohen – Cypress River
Audrey – Deloraine
Dominik – Grandview
Maisie – Hartney
Kyle – Holland
Ethan – Laurier
Carly – Minnedosa
Austin – Oakburn
Sophia – Reston

Sunrise Credit Union is committed to educating the public to help individuals become self-sufficient to achieve financial stability. Providing these skills can help a person develop an economic ‘road map’ to identify what they earn, what they spend and what they owe. 2020 marked the tenth year of Financial Literacy Month.
