OneUnited Bank partners with BMe Community to celebrate #IAmBlackGenius and #MakeBlackHistory by showcasing financial literacy. In a nationwide BMe powered search for the best and brightest, kids between the ages of 8 and 12 are encouraged to read a financial literacy book of their choosing, and either write a 250-word essay or create an art project to show how they would apply what they learned from the book to their daily lives. Submissions must be emailed or postmarked by June 15, 2018. The Bank will choose ten winners and award a $1,000 OneUnited Bank savings account by August 31, 2018.
