Home Run Reading Challenge! Kids can earn up to $25 cash this summer!

Posted on Updated on

As a way to promote financial literacy, CommonWealth One bank developed the Home Run Reading Challenge.

The Home Run Reading Challenge can help your child learn more about money management, while practicing reading skills over the summer break. It’s easy for your child to hit a home run by reading four books from our list and completing the required reading log.

The cash rewards add up quickly! Your child will receive $5 for each book they read.* When they read four books, they’ll hit a home run and get an additional $5, for a total of $25! Their cash prize will be deposited into their CommonWealth One savings account.

Visit cofcu.org for a book list and the reading log form. Email completed reading log to marketing@cofcu.org, Subject: Reading Challenge by Thursday, August 31, 2018.
