An intense 30-day competition among Northern Virginia schools helped students, educators and staff across five counties save a record-breaking $292,350 during Apple Federal Credit Union's "Feed the Pig" savings competition.

Apple FCU's sponsorship included financial education workshops, as well as marketing and promotion guidance, for all participating schools.
