Students at Royal’s elementary School $ense locations took part in our All Student Challenge to show off their money skills. Each student received a worksheet that reviewed important money saving tips such as needs versus wants and paying yourself first. Students were then asked to illustrate what they would do with one million dollars. The contest was open to all students, regardless of their Royal Membership status, and two students from each of our schools were selected to win a shopping spree at our School $ense prize table.
School $ense is Royal’s signature financial education program that operates student-run credit union locations in grade schools, middle schools, and high schools throughout Royal’s footprint in Wisconsin and Minnesota. The School $ense program began at Meadowview Elementary School in Eau Claire during the 1992-1993 school year and is now celebrating it’s 30th year of operation!
