April is Credit Union Youth Month

“The Future is Yours...Picture it! Save for it! Share it!”

In April, we celebrate Youth Month and National Financial Literacy Month. We want to inspire young people to save their money at TopMark so they can enjoy the future they picture.  We encourage you to open your child's account online since our TopMark lobbies are closed.  

  • Open a new account for anyone under age 17 and receive the first $5 deposited directly from us.
  • All new accounts will be entered to WIN our grand prize drawing for a Columbus Zoo 2020 Family Membership.

1 Offer good for new or existing youth accounts age 17 and under. New account must be opened by April 30, 2020. Only one $ 5.00 deposit per member. Only one entry per member for Grand Prize Drawing. Account must be opened by April 30, 2020.   Employees and volunteers of the credit union and their immediate family members are not eligible.

The theme for this year’s Youth Month is “The future is yours… Picture it! Save for it! Share it!”. Together, we’re encouraging youngsters to express themselves through photography, sharing their visions for their own financial futures so we can help them get there.

Start small. Help your children save for a toy they want. Then sign them up for a youth savings account where they save for far-off goals.

As your credit union, we want to help you teach your children to learn good financial habits. Together we can help them fulfill their dreams no matter big or small.

Get involved by using the Twitter hashtag @CUYouthMonth to let everyone know how your credit union is making a difference in young members’ lives.


The National Youth Saving Challenge is open to all youth under 18 who visit a participating credit union during April. While youth are encouraged to make a deposit at the credit union, no deposit is required to enter.

Parents/guardians giving permission for their youth to enter can submit on a 3" x 5" piece of paper the following information to the credit union:

  • Name
  • Date
  • Current age

Limit one entry per person.

The Credit Union National Association (CUNA) will be participating  by having a saving challenge.  They will randomly select and give a $1,000 grand prize to a participating credit union. That credit union will then randomly select a winner from its entrants. Your credit union will notify you if you are a winner
