This year’s essay topic is:
As a credit union member, explain why someone should choose a credit
union as their primary financial institution over alternative service
providers, such as for-profit banks.
This year’s video topic is:
Create a 60-second advertisement targeted specifically at a younger
viewer (under the age of 30) that highlights the benefits of credit union
This year’s photo theme is the credit union core value, "Respectful".
Judges will be looking for a photo submission that is good enough to be
used for lobby posters. So put some thought into your photo. It will take as much effort as those who
submit essays and videos!
Your photo doesn’t have to be directly related to the financial
services industry, but it does need to capture the year’s assigned theme.
