Local student gets scholarship for grades

Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

David Kobe from Carbon High School learned good grades really do pay off.

Kobe, a senior, won the Price-area drawing for a $100 scholarship savings account from Zions Bank's Pays for A's program. Zions Bank's Price financial service representative Monica Clausing along with principal Greg Stansfield surprised Kobe with the scholarship during the morning school announcements on Nov. 18.

Open to all Idaho and Utah students in seventh through twelfth grade and between ages 13 through 18, Zions Pays for A's 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, Kobe brought his report card with at least one "A" grade into Zions Bank's Price 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 David to do their very best in school," said Clausing, financial service representative of Zions Bank's Price office.
