Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

Jackson Jensen from Canyon View Junior High learned good grades really do pay off. Jensen, a seventh grader, won the Emery County-area drawing for a $100 scholarship savings account from Zions Bank's Pays for As program. Zions Bank's Castle Dale branch manager Joel Hatch, Jenene Hansen, customer service manager, along with Principal Jones surprised Jensen with the scholarship during the school's wrestling meet on Nov. 24.

Open to all Idaho and Utah students in seventh- 12th grade and ages 13-18, Zions Pays for As offers cash incentives for good grades. Teen students simply take their most recent term-end report cards from the current academic year into any Zions Bank location. They'll receive $1 per "A" deposited into their Teengreen savings accounts, or .50 cents per "A" if they opt for cash. For each "A" on their report cards, students receive automatic entries into one of 152 annual drawings for scholarship prizes worth up to $1,000.

Earlier this year, Jensen brought his report card with at least one "A" grade into Zions Bank's Huntington office. His name was selected randomly in a drawing among entrants from that branch.

Students have until Feb. 5 to submit most recent report cards for the next $100 scholarship savings account drawing. Students need not be customers of Zions to participate. More information and full contest details are available online at

"At Zions Bank, we understand the importance of supporting our schools and investing in the futures of young people in our communities. We take pride in strengthening the efforts of teachers and parents in encouraging teens like Jackson to do their very best in school," said Hatch, branch manager of Zions Bank's Castle Dale office.
