With 869 likes on his comment by the close of our scholarship entry period, Our Student Saver Scholarship winner is Nick Balliett, a student at the Kansas City Art Institute. Check out Nick's response to our scholarship question: Which Learn.org Student Saver article do you wish you had read before you started college?
I really wish I had read the article '5 Ways High School Students Can Start Saving for College.' It outlined some of the basic ways I could have been more prepared for entering college, and how exactly I should have gone about it. College is an extremely valuable thing, and reading this article beforehand would have helped me realize the importance of starting to save early. All of the little stuff can really add up and help out tremendously!
Help Nick Win $5000
Currently, Nick's scholarship amount is $939.50, but you can help him increase that number all the way up to the full $5000. For every new 'like' the Learn.org Facebook page receives by January 15, we will add another $0.50 to Nick's scholarship amount. Tell your family and friends to Like our page and help Nick win the full $5000!
Photo Finish for First
It was a very close race for first place and while Nick Balliett managed to pull ahead, Nicholas Garcia was in it until the end with 863 likes. As our second-place winner, Nicholas will receive $300. Read Nick's response to our scholarship question:
I wish I would have read the article '5 Reasons to Open a Savings Account Now' before I had started college. I only recently opened my first account when I started college and am now juggling how to balance a checkbook along with all of the other daily happenings of a college student. Reading this before hand would have motivated me to open it and have the experience to know how to spend my money wisely. I also would have started out college with money by gaining interest on what I had instead of holding it all in my wallet where it only gets spent whenever I see something I want.
