PR Newswire

BOSTON, April 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- In celebration of National Financial Literacy Month, OneUnited Bank, the nation's largest black-owned bank, is proud to announce its 10th Annual "I Got Bank!"  National Financial Literacy Contest where ten children will win a $1,000 savings account.  To support families who are home schooling their children due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the Bank is offering a free "I Got Bank" E-Book.

Students from across the country between the ages of 8 and 12 are encouraged to read a financial literacy book of their choosing, and either write a 250-word essay or create an art project to show how they would apply what they learned from the book to their daily lives. Submissions must be emailed or postmarked by June 30, 2020. The Bank will choose ten winners and award each winner a $1,000 savings account at OneUnited Bank by August 31, 2020.

Teri Williams, OneUnited Bank President and author of "I Got Bank!

"In celebration of our 10th anniversary, we are proud to offer a free "I Got Bank" E-book to families who are home schooling their children due to the cancellation of schools," states Ms. Williams. "We hope to inspire more families to focus on financial literacy, while providing a fun activity for youth. It's amazing that in 10 years we have proudly awarded thousands of dollars to youth and created budding financial experts to seed the next generation."

The 2019 winners, whose essays and art will be published in April 2020, were: Sabreen A. El-Amin, 12, Pasadena, CA, Kristian Flakes, 11, Pearland, TX, Precious Fofana, 8, Hyde Park, MA, Zaiderick Hayes, 12, Birmingham, AL, Arielle Johnson, 12, Davenport, IA, DeAsia Mauldin, 11, Compton, CA, Xavier Nelson, 12, Moseley, VA, Arabia Roberts, 12, Washington, DC, Patrick Sweet, 11, Miramar, FL and David Wines, 10, Des Moines, IA,
