CUNA to Select 12 Students for Googolplex Youth Editorial Board
Friday, January 24, 2014 6:40 AM

Representatives from Credit Union National Association (CUNA) will select students from across the country to serve one-year terms as youth editorial board members for the CUNA microsite called Googolplex: The Credit Union Guide for Student Moneymakers.

Requests for applications are being accepted through March 7, 2014 for all 12 positions. The new student board members’ terms will begin on June 1, 2014.

Googolplex is the youth-focused element of CUNA’s suite of microsites, which guide credit union members through financial decisions at every stage of life. Googolplex features interactive games, videos, blogs, and other content dealing with money matters and real life issues to promote financial literacy for youth in grades three through 12.

Youth editorial board members complete two brief online critiques each month of stories and games in age-specific sections of Googolplex’s award-winning three-in-one website. At the end of their terms, each of the middle- and high-school board members writes an original story for Googolplex.

  • Four elementary school-aged students (grades 3-5) will serve on the Clubhouse Crew for 5-Spot.
  • Four middle school-aged students (grades 6-8) make up the Super Youth Team for AJ's.
  • Four high-school-aged students (grades 9-12) will be on the Teenage Panel for C-Note.

Board members must be in grades three-12 in the fall of 2014 or, if home-schooled, of the same grade-level ages, and will work from home. Applications are available by request from Laurel Purves, Googolplex youth editorial board liaison. You may reach Purves via email, at, or by phone: (608) 231-4088. Please state the child’s grade level or age equivalent if home-schooled and use “Googolplex Youth Board Application” in the subject line. Requests are due by March 7, 2014.
