CB&T to host High School Seniors for Bank Day on Tuesday, March 21!
CB&T is excited to partner with Virginia Banker’s Association (VBA) in an important scholarship program for high school seniors called Bank Day.
The third Tuesday in March was declared Bank Day by the Virginia General Assembly in 1991. On this day, high school seniors with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher spend a day in banks across the Commonwealth shadowing bankers in their daily duties. The purpose of this experience is for the students to learn about banking, financial services, and the vital role banks play in their communities.
Following their experience in the Bank, students are required to write an essay for a chance to win one of seven scholarships awarded by the VBA.
The essay topic will be "What did you learn on Bank Day that will help you manage your financial future AND what did you learn about how banks support their communities?"
Participating students will have the opportunity to win one of six $2,500 regional scholarships that are offered. The regional winners are also entered to win an additional $5,000 scholarship that is awarded to the statewide winner. Additionally, there will be six honorable mention scholarships of $1,000 (one in each of the six regions). In all, $26,000 worth of scholarships are awarded through this program.
Interested students should complete and submit the Student Registration Form by no later than Tuesday, March 14, 2017. *Applications may also be submitted online at the website provided on the registration form.
Please contact Lindsey Page with any questions.
