Zions Bank® Pays for A’s

Hardworking middle school, junior high, and high school students (ages 12 to 18) in Utah and Idaho can earn $1 per "A" on their 2018–2019 report cards. (Sorry, “A-” grades aren’t eligible.) Eligible students are also entered for a chance to win scholarship savings accounts worth up to $1,000. 

How To Get Started

  1. Students should bring their most recent report card for the 2018–2019 school year and a parent or guardian to any branch.
  2. For every "A," they’ll get $1 deposited into a Young Savers Account. If they don't have an account or aren’t a Zions Bank® client, they’ll still be rewarded .50 cents per "A."
  3. Getting paid for an “A” enters the student for the chance to win a scholarship savings account in a drawing. The student’s name, grade, phone number, school name and city must be provided to be entered.
