Teens tweet "what it means to be a credit union member"

We just wrapped up our Second Annual Tweet for College Scholarship for high school seniors. The scholarship is part of our cooperative Elements of Money program for credit union teens. To qualify for the scholarship, we asked teens to tell us what it means to them to be a credit union member. We had only one submission requirement: their response must be submitted via Twitter—and within the site’s 140 character limit.

So what did teens have to say about credit unions? We generated a word cloud using the tweets we collected. As you’ll see, some of the most popular words teens used were “financial,” “community,” “family,” “future,” “money,” and “college.”

And here are the winning tweets:
