MADISON, Wis. (9/15/14)--A dozen students from across the United States have been picked to serve one-year terms as youth board members on the Credit Union National Association's microsite Googolplex: The Credit Union Guide for Student Money Makers.
The site is the youth-focused component of CUNA's personal finance microsite suite, which guides credit union members through the financial decisions they encounter at every stage of life.
"We value the feedback and fresh ideas that we receive from our youth editorial board members," said Rena Crispin, Googolplex managing editor at CUNA. "These bright students help us develop financial literacy tools that speak directly to their peers."
Googolplex features interactive games, videos, blogs and other content related to managing money and real-life issues that help promote financial literacy for youth age 8 to 18.
The newly selected board members will author critiques of stories and games in age-specific sections of the microsite, and at the end of their one-year terms each board member will write an original story for Googolplex.
