Philadelphia Federal Credit Union Seeks Local 3rd-5th Grade Students for Art Competition


About Art Competition

PFCU’s 4th annual art competition returns during National Financial Literacy Month to teach children how to establish and maintain healthy financial habits. Learning and practicing good financial habits such as saving, budgeting and setting financial goals at a young age help to ensure young people grow to become financially responsible adults.

Parents and teachers of 3rd-5th graders are encouraged to talk to their children and students about these life-changing lessons, and PFCU’s art competition is a great hands-on activity to start these conversations. If your child’s school isn’t participating, you can still join in on the fun and complete an entry at home with your child!

Hurry, all entries due April 30, 2015!
