Alexandria, VA, USA – WEBWIRE

Alexandria, VA — CommonWealth One Federal Credit Union asked its youth members to create a short (up to one minute) video in which they explain what kind of saver they are — and members responded with creative ideas and humor.
CommonWealth One awarded three youth members with prizes in May for their video submissions. Topics included how to save money while grocery shopping, inventive ways to save for college and remembering to pay yourself first.

The winners were:

  • 1st Place - Brya Levister
  • 2nd Place - Allison Wimer
  • 3rd Place - Jemila Gebru

CommonWealth One is dedicated to youth financial education initiatives. The credit union was honored by the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) as a national first place winner with the 2016 Desjardins Youth Financial Education Award -- recognition of the credit union’s ongoing efforts to educate young people about responsible personal finance practices.
