CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Aug 27, 2013) - As children across the country return to school, TransUnion celebrates back-to-school season with the launch of the TransUnion School Spirit Sweepstakes, which will award up to $5,000 to one lucky school to help educate students on the financial ABCs. Additionally, each day one entrant will be drawn to receive an Apple iPhone, *in the form of a $200 Apple giftcard, to help that parent stay in touch with his or her children, and stay on top of his or her credit with the new TransUnion mobile application.
"We are excited to award one school with the cash prize to help them teach children about the basics of credit and money management," said Julie Springer, vice president at TransUnion responsible for consumer education. "Additionally, we recognize that the school year is filled with shuffling children to and from school and athletics and music rehearsals, and staying on top of your finances can be difficult for any parent. With the iPhone prize, parents can better stay in touch with their children, and better stay on top of their credit with the new TransUnion mobile application."
