Five Eligible 2014 Summer Reading Program Participants Entered In Scholarship Drawing

Trendon, Traiton, and Taileigh Starr, and Jessica and Remington Roth, participants of Gordon City Library’s 2014 Summer Reading Program, “Fizz, Boom, Read”, were entered in the “NEST Read to Win $529!” drawing as part of a joint program put on by Nebraska’s 529 College Savings Plans (NEST), First National Bank of Omaha, Nebraska State Treasurer Don Stenberg and the Nebraska Library Commission.

Fifteen summer readers, five in each of Nebraska’s three congressional districts, will be randomly drawn from those who complete a summer reading program. Each winner will receive $529 in a NEST college savings account. The library of each winner will receive a $250 donation. Winners will be announced during college savings month in September.

“NEST is proud to support the educational efforts of Nebraska’s children as well as the great work of the libraries statewide,” said Deborah Goodkin, Managing Director of NEST at First National Bank of Omaha. “With the libraries encouraging leisure reading during the summer, children can daydream and think of places they want to go and what they want to be. We hope this scholarship program encourages children and families to get involved in summer reading and complete the program with a little extra incentive for a possible scholarship.”

For more information and official scholarship rules, visit the NEST College Savings Plans at www.NEST529.com, the State Treasurer’s Office at www.treasurer.org/cs/ or the Nebraska Library Commission at http://nlc.nebraska.gov.
