State Bank of Lincoln offers
scholarship competition

[JAN. 10, 2001]  State Bank of Lincoln has announced a scholarship competition that enables Illinois high school seniors to enter a statewide essay-writing contest. It is part of a program sponsored by Illinois community banks and the CBAI Foundation for Community Banking to increase public awareness of locally owned banks and their contributions to the community.

State Bank of Lincoln is a member of the Community Bankers Association of Illinois (CBAI), which formed the foundation in 1996. A scholarship in the amount of $1,000 per year for up to four years of higher education will be awarded to the author of the best essay submitted to the CBAI Foundation by a participating Illinois high school senior. Up to 12 additional $1,000 awards are available in each of the regions of the state. An additional $500 will be awarded to the high school of the overall winner.


The bank is working with Lincoln Community High School, Mount Pulaski High School and Olympia High School to invite seniors to submit short essays on this theme: "What new or enhanced products and services will community banks be offering in the 21st century?"

William M. Hull, executive vice president, stated, "Any high school senior student in the area served by the bank is encouraged to participate. The past three regional winners have been submitted to the CBAI by the bank. Winners were from Lincoln Community High and Mount Pulaski High School."

Information on the contest is available at the high schools and through William Hull at the bank. Entries must be submitted to the bank by Feb. 14, 2001. The bank will then submit selected entries to the CBAI Foundation to be eligible for the statewide competition.

Based in Springfield, CBAI is a professional association that represents approximately 540 banks and thrifts throughout Illinois.
