Advancial Awards Three Savvy Saver Dinero Teens Scholarships
July 26, 2012 DALLAS— Advancial Federal Credit Union continued the initiative to support education by awarding scholarships in the amounts of $3,000, $2,000 and $1,000 to three Dinero Teens members. Dinero Teens is a financial services program designed for Advancial members aged 13 to 18. “This year’s applicants were especially creative” said Brent Sheffield, President and CEO of Advancial. “We were thoroughly impressed by the unique ways that the students chose to showcase their financial planning knowledge.” This year’s task for Dinero Teens was to create a thorough, organized and creative budget presentation for their college expenses. Many times high school teens underestimate the cost of tuition, books, room and board and the many other costs incurred during college years. This scholarship activity is meant to encourage junior high and senior aged high school teens to create a presentation detailing those costs. In order to involve employees in the selection process we opened voting company-wide to determine the top three winners. Applicants were judged on academic achievement and the content, organization, clarity and creativity of the budget project submitted. The first place winner received a $3,000 scholarship for a creative song about budgeting. The song was a parody of the song Viva la Viva by Coldplay and was transformed by the winning contestant into Viva la Budget. A professional and well thought PowerPoint presentation earned a Dinero Teen me…
