Northwest Bank calls for entries for the upcoming Money Smart Week's Poster and Essay Contests!

Money Smart Week® is a public awareness campaign designed to help consumers better manage their personal finances. This is achieved through the collaboration and coordinated effort of hundreds of organizations across the country including businesses, financial institutions, schools, libraries, not-for-profits, government agencies and the media.  The effort was created by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago in 2002. Money Smart Week events will take place on April 20 - 27, 2013.

The contests encourages youth to communicate the value of saving and inspire others to become smart money managers. The contests are meant to be fun and exciting but when all is said and done, we hope students will take action and start young to save more.
