GETTYSBURG, PA, June 3---Students learned their financial ABCs and more during financial literacy presentations conducted by ACNB Bank staff members. These presentations were in conjunction with the 17th Annual National Teach Children to Save Campaign.

The National Teach Children to Save Campaign was initiated by the American Bankers Association Education Foundation (ABAEF) in 1997 to help youth become informed consumers of the financial marketplace. The ABAEF has information on its web site that parents and teachers can use to teach money skills to children. This information can be accessed at www.aba.com/ABAEF/consumers.

ACNB Bank staff members made several financial literacy presentations at schools within the Bank's market areas from January through May. The Bank staff members and schools involved include: Danielle M. Peters and Christy M. Beaston - Biglerville Elementary School; Danielle M. Peters - Biglerville High School; Barbara D. Guise - Bermudian Springs High School; Tammy J. Smarsh - Fairfield Area High School and Franklin Township Elementary School; Kimberly A. Petrie - Rolling Acres Elementary School in Littlestown; and, Douglas R. Lindsay - Newville Elementary School and Mooreland Elementary School in Carlisle. Approximately 630 students participated in these presentations.

"Any age is a good time to talk to youth about using money wisely," said Danielle M. Peters, Retail Office Manager for the Bank's Biglerville, Arendtsville and Bendersville Offices. "The more often children hear this information, the more likely they are to develop smart money habits throughout their life. We're glad to have the opportunity to work with the students and teachers on this subject."

Each presentation is tailored to the grade level participating in the program. Topics featured in the presentations conducted by the Bank's staff members involved saving, budgeting and credit: how to save; prioritizing "wants" versus "needs"; making choices between spending and savings money; how to establish credit; and, the importance of good credit. Biglerville High School students also learned about the features and benefits of online banking. These topics were presented via discussions and hands-on activities.
