CUNA Opens 2013 Youth Week Theme Options for Ranking

Credit union staff and youth nationwide have a chance to provide their input on the 2013 theme for National Credit Union Youth Week, which will be celebrated April 21-27, 2013.

Through this annual celebration, credit unions are encouraged to build relationships with new and existing young members. Each year’s theme is selected through a nationwide poll and promotes saving in a fun, engaging way that will help young people start their financial life on the right foot.

This year’s theme semi-finalists are:

  • Money Quest – Begin at the Credit Union (medieval/fantasy adventure theme)
  • Peace, Love & Savings (1960s/1970s theme)
  • Savings Sleuth: A Credit Union Mystery (detective theme)
  • ‘Stache Your Cash at a Credit Union (mustache theme)

“We value the theme input we receive from youth and credit union staff alike,” said Joanne Sepich, CUNA’s Youth Week coordinator. “It’s important to us that the theme resonates with what young credit union members enjoy so they are engaged in their credit union’s celebration of Youth Week.”

Voting is open through Sept. 25, 2012. The chosen theme will be used to create celebration materials for credit unions, posters and free downloadable materials.

Cast your vote for the 2013 theme at and sign up for a free e-newsletter for an announcement of the results.
