April is Financial Literacy Month and April 25 is Teach Children to Save day.

Teaching our children to save is one of the best ways we can set them up for a lifetime of financial success.

Our "Savings Made Sweet" coloring contest is a simple way to have fun talking about savings. Read on for the full details.

 Savings Made Sweet Details:

  • Print out or visit any of our main bank locations to pick up a coloring page.
  • Have fun coloring with your kids (or even just by yourself) as you help them dream up savings goals.
  • Return the finished coloring page to any of our bank locations by April 25 to be put on display in our lobbies.
  • Returning the page will enter it into our Savings Made Sweet drawing (random drawing based on number of submissions).
    • It's sure to be a "sweet" prize!
  • Include your name, kids name, and phone number on the back so we can contact you if you're the winner.
