MCUL Financial Literacy Legislative Challenge 

This April will mark the 10th year that MCUL & Affiliates will help pair credit unions with lawmakers for youth financial education events during National Financial Literacy Month in April. The Financial Literacy Legislative Challenge is a cooperative effort aimed at educating young people about responsible money management throughout the month of April.

The challenge builds great relationships between Michigan legislators and their constituents in the credit union community while providing students the financial skills they need. Lawmakers will be invited to join with participating credit unions for financial education events in April in a school, at your credit union or in the community.

New this year, participating credit unions and lawmakers will be provided with a Biz Kid$ presentation kit including a DVD of an episode along with a printed lesson plan that may be used for a youth presentation. For more information about the Financial Literacy Legislative Challenge, contact MCUL & Affiliates Financial Education Coordinator Beth Troost at or (800) 262-6285, ext. 453.

Submissions to Monitor may be emailed. Bryan Laviolette is the editor of Monitor. Contact him by email or call (800) 262-6285, ext. 233.
