Monday, May 18, 2015 8:00 AM

The Cornerstone Credit Union League and the Credit Union National Association are pleased to sponsor the Desjardins Award for leadership within the credit union movement on behalf of financial literacy for all ages. Could you be a good candidate for this award?

Naming the award after Alphonse Desjardins emphasizes the movement's long-time commitment to youth. Besides founding the first credit unions in Canada and the United States, Desjardins pioneered youth savings clubs and in-school "banks," known as caisses scolaires.

The recognition program considers all activities supporting the personal finance education of members and non-members, including, but not limited to, face-to-face teaching using proprietary materials and curricula, such as the NEFE High School Financial Planning Program (HSFPP), as well as financial literacy leadership efforts

Entries for this recognition program will be accepted through Tuesday, June 30.
