Have your kids get their crayons or colored pencils out and draw us a picture of what they want to save up for. We’ll post them around the RMLEFCU offices this spring. And then our panel of judges will choose their three favorites!

Each winner receives a $100 award, which will be deposited straight into their Kids Savings Account!
