German American Bank announces essay contest


German American Bank has announced its sponsorship of this year’s EVERFI Financial Literacy Bee, a financial literacy course for students and their families.

The bank has been a sponsor since the inaugural event in 2020. The regional challenge takes place April 7 to 21 and features an essay contest open to junior high and high school students ages 13 to 19.

Those submitting an essay will be eligible to win part of $2,500 in prizes.

One regional winner will be awarded a $500 Visa gift card from EVERFI, and four additional winners, two in Indiana and two in Kentucky, will each receive a $500 prize from German American.

The virtual challenge features four short digital lessons followed by a capstone essay contest in which students share a short-term or long-term savings goal and outline their plan to achieve that goal based on what they’ve learned.
