Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – The Altra Foundation Financial Education scholarship was available to high school students (grades 9-12), ages 13+. To be eligible, applicants needed to complete various modules through their partnered Banzai program, which is offered on Altra’s website or through teacher’s classrooms. Applicants did not need to be members of Altra Federal Credit Union to participate or win.

“Because we had such a high turnout our first year, we decided to give two scholarships this year,” says Danielle Anderson, Altra’s Youth Strategies Manager.

“The Banzai! program has received several compliments from students over the years that have completed the modules and students highly recommend it to their friends”.

The Altra Foundation selected two winners for the Financial Education scholarship, Caeli McMahon from Melrose-Mindoro High School and Olivia Gardner from Cotter High School. A check presentation will be held for the winners at the Altra Federal Credit Union Operations Center, located at 1700 Oak Forest Drive, Onalaska, WI 54650 on Monday, June 13th at 11:00am.
