Chambers student Wyatt Ehlers is one of five finalists in the Bank On Nebraska Challenge put on by the Nebraska Bankers Association (NBA).
The goal of the contest is to increase awareness of the important role Nebraska banks play in the well-being of communities, schools, and families.
With nearly 150 video entries from high school students from across the state, selecting the five finalists was not an easy task for Nebraska bankers. You’ll find a link to the top 20 videos on www.BankOnNE.com. Several members of the NBA’s Young Bankers of Nebraska Committee and the NBA Leadership Class of 2018 helped make the selections.
The winning student of the Bank On Nebraska Challenge will receive the top prize - a $2,000 scholarship. Five finalists will receive a MacBook and a $529 scholarship. The home schools of the five finalists will receive $529 in unrestricted funds to assist with school supplies, and the home school of the winner will receive an additional $2,000.
In addition, a $1,000 scholarship will be awarded to the funniest video. Also, $100 is being randomly awarded to 10 lucky winners out of the pool of contest participants.
Finalists, along with a parent/guardian/teacher, will be honored at the 2018 NBA Annual Convention on May 4 in La Vista, where the grand prize winner of the Bank On Nebraska Challenge and the funniest video will be announced.
