Cornhusker Bank will be kicking off a new Youth Financial Program on August 13th, starting with a carnival at their Apple’s Way branch at 63rd and Highway 2, from 1 P.M. to 3 P.M. As a community bank, Cornhusker Bank is concerned with statistics showing our nation’s teenagers are currently undereducated about personal finance.
The Youth Program will feature products which match the needs parents have to help start good financial habits for their children. One such product the bank will be initiating in August will be PowerUp. PowerUp is a round up type product, which will allow adults to automatically round up pre-determined amounts to their children’s savings accounts each time they make a purchase using their Cornhusker Bank VISA Check Card. The Youth Program will also make use of a semi-annual financial newsletter, “Kids Count”, which will be mailed directly to youth with accounts at Cornhusker Bank. Other educational opportunities for youth will be presented by the bank throughout the year.
All children attending the August 13th Kid’s Carnival will be given a quantity of Cornhusker Bank’s “Super Bill” bucks to “budget” on games and activities they wish to participate in. “Super Bill” and “Penny Wise”, the bank’s financial Superheroes will be featured to help interest youth in developing financial literacy.
Cornhusker Bank remains Lincoln’s oldest locally owned bank, demonstrating stability, soundness and continued commitment to the success of its valued customers and employees.
