GREENBELT, MD (August 25, 2014) — Educational Systems Federal Credit Union kicked off its latest Tips & Tools for Back to School sweepstakes earlier this month to help the education community prepare for another successful school year. As part of their commitment to support education, the Credit Union is providing participants a chance each week to win one of six $100 Visa® Gift Cards for back to school shopping. In addition, one grand prize winner will be selected to give the school of their choice, within the seven counties the Credit Union serves, a $1,000 donation provided by the Credit Union.

Tips & Tools for Back to School runs through September 22 and already includes many helpful tips to help students eat healthier, stay motivated in the classroom and keep their backpacks germ-free. More time and money-saving tips are being posted daily. Members of the Credit Union, and others within the education community, are encouraged to share their Tips & Tools for Back to School by emailing

Educational Systems Federal Credit Union’s first weekly winner, Fiona M, had this to say: “Thank you so much!  I was so surprised and this is so exciting! I was thinking about how much money I could afford to spend getting my classroom ready this year when I got the call that I won! Now I can be sure my room is ready for learning.”
