EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- It's a special day for partnership that's lasted 20 years, helping kids learn all about money management.

On Wednesday, RCU celebrated its 20th anniversary of the School $ense program at its first site, Meadowview Elementary.

The program gives students the opportunity to learn about good saving habits by opening up a savings account and making a deposit each week.

The schools are rewarded for each deposit made, with the program expanding to 26 schools in the area.

For kids to start early is so important if they can just get in the habit of putting a little bit away every year, as a grownup they'll already have that habit formed and continue to put money away,” said vice president of marketing Vicki Hoehn.

The students at Meadowview were presented with a $250 check for all of the savings they made in their accounts.
