OneUnited Bank's Annual "I Got Bank" Youth Financial Literacy Contest

OneUnited Bank Debit Card

OneUnited Bank, the nation's largest Black-owned bank, is sponsoring their annual "I Got Bank!" Financial Literacy Contest for youth between the ages of 8 - 12 years old. Ten children will win a $1,000 savings account.
To enter, students simply need to either write and submit a 250-word essay or create and submit an art project (PDF only) about what you learned from the book “I Got Bank!” (or from another financial literacy book available in your library or home) and how you can use what you learned in your life or the life of your family.

Teri Williams, OneUnited Bank President and author of "I Got Bank!" wrote the book when she found that there weren't any books geared toward educating urban youth about finances. "We've seen our financial literacy efforts increase awareness through the #BankBlack and #BuyBlack movement... We are celebrating the #Kings and #Queens in our community who are focusing on our treasure!"

The deadline for this scholarship is usually in JUNE, and the award amount is usually $1,000.
