the jungle of financial responsibility. Before long, you’ll be leading your own savings safari.

Make a deposit into your Hughes savings account anytime in April to participate in the National
Youth Savings Challenge™! 25 young savers nationwide will be selected to WIN $100 each*.
Whatever you are saving for, Hughes can help you “Get Wild About Saving” at your Credit Union.
