“We realize that to reach teens with the message of the importance of smart money management, we need to engage them on the channels they use, which is video. It’s critically important for young people to understand financial literacy and financial health, and we were thrilled to be able to offer this contest again this year that delivers a financial learning opportunity for students,” says Patricia (Patti) A. Husic, President and CEO of Centric Bank.
