Blessed Trin­ity Re­gion­al Cath­ol­ic School, 3033 Levick St. in Lower May­fair, was honored last week as a win­ner of an art con­test sponsored by Phil­adelphia Fed­er­al Cred­it Uni­on. The prizes in­cluded $250 for a classroom to spend on school sup­plies. PFCU’s mas­cot, Moola Moola, and per­son­al fin­ance ex­pert Domi­n­ique Jen­kins sur­prised the win­ners on the morn­ing of Dec. 3. This fall, PFCU partnered with Phil­adelphia-area private and pub­lic schools to hold the second an­nu­al art com­pet­i­tion de­signed to teach third- to fifth-grade stu­dents the im­port­ance of sav­ing money at a young age. Hun­dreds of young artists sub­mit­ted entries, and thou­sands of Phil­adelphi­ans voted for the win­ners on the cred­it uni­on’s Face­book page. The oth­er win­ning school was St. Fran­cis de Sales in West Phil­adelphia.
