Stu­dent re­warded through Zions Pays for A’s pro­gram


Salem Hills High School 12th-grader Ben­jamin Cro­mar re­ceived a $100 schol­ar­ship sav­ings ac­count as a re­gional win­ner of the win­ter draw­ing through Zions Bank’s Pays for A’s pro­gram.

Pays for A’s re­wards stu­dents who put in the ef­fort to make their grades count. Malissa Craig, man­ager of the Payson fi­nan­cial cen­ter, sur­prised Cro­mar with his win dur­ing a pre­sen­ta­tion at the school.

Cro­mar was en­tered into the draw­ing by bring­ing his re­port card to Zions Bank and get­ting paid for every “A” he re­ceived. More than 1,400 stu­dents en­tered the win­ter draw­ing through­out Utah and Idaho.

“We know that it takes ex­tra time and ef­fort to earn high marks, so we’re proud to rec­og­nize the achieve­ments of stu­dents like Ben­jamin through the Pays for A’s pro­gram,” said Craig. “Our goal is to help stu­dents fo­cus on school­work and mo­ti­vate them to earn good grades.”

Pays for A’s is open to all Utah and Idaho stu­dents ages 12 to 18. Stu­dents can par­tic­i­pate by bring­ing their most cur­rent term-end re­port card into any Zions Bank lo­ca­tion. Stu­dents do not need a Zions Bank ac­count to par­tic­i­pate. They’ll re­ceive $1 per “A” de­posited into their sav­ings ac­count or 50 cents per “A” if they opt for cash. For each “A” on their re­port cards, stu­dents are en­tered into a draw­ing to win one of 150 re­gional schol­ar­ship prizes each worth $100 and one grand prize worth $1,000 in each state.
