Eurobank announced a contest for the design of the “Eurobank Big Heart” charity card that will run until 20 April. The contest is the first step in the “School Designed for You” project, which aims to improve working and learning conditions in secondary economics schools in Serbia.
Every transaction made by Eurobank customers with their “Eurobank Big Heart” MasterCard will have a certain portion of the amount earmarked for remodelling classrooms and buying needed equipment, at no extra cost to cardholders.“We wanted to involve high school students in designing the “Eurobank Big Heart” card and thus enable them to join the “School Designed for You” project. The Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development decided to support us because it recognised the project’s importance for improving education in secondary schools – in addition to renovating classrooms and purchasing needed equipment, we will have guest lecturers from Eurobank speak at schools and students do practical work at our bank”
