AJ's Reader Poll results—Got Money?
Thanks to you, credit union teenagers know how to save their money. The most recent reader poll in AJ's, the middle-school level of Googolplex, shows that when they receive money, 56% say they save it for something big.
Introduce your young teenage members to Shawn. When he was five, Shawn, now 11, started getting an allowance. "My parents told me to budget my allowance and save some for my future," he says. His response: “I'm only five, why save now?”
Now Shawn says he understands why. In "Investing Can Get You Free Money," Shawn tells his preteenage cohort what he learned about earning, budgeting, and investing money.
Here is the recent reader poll question* submitted by online reader jlu11:

Q: When you receive money, do you...
1. Spend it right away?
2. Save for something big?
3. Give to charity?
4. Put it in your wallet?
Instant poll questions capture your high school members’ attention. On which issues would you like to learn more about what they think? Use your imagination and send your poll questions with possible responses to Rena Crispin.

* Instant poll results reflect an unscientific sampling of Googolplex readers.
