Franklin Mint Federal Credit Union held its second annual School Spirit contest to rally enthusiasm for financial literacy. Of the ten competing schools and more than 20,000 votes, Woodlyn Elementary in the Ridley School District garnered the most votes (8,000+) to earn a special visit from Brother Bear and Sister Bear. FMFCU Partners in Education will escort the Cubs to Woodlyn Elementary on Thursday, June 9 to read The Berenstain Bears Visit the Credit Union and lead interactive games and activities.

All schools participating in Franklin Mint Federal Credit Union’s Berenstain Bears Financial Literacy Program were eligible to participate in this contest.
