COVID-19 updates & ways VSAC can help
VSAC invites Class of 2020 grads: “Have takeout on us!”
To all the graduating high school seniors in Vermont: Congratulations! VSAC wants to pay for takeout, to celebrate you.
That’s right. Vermont Student Assistance Corp. will pay $50 toward takeout for 5 seniors each week, now through June 26. That could be pizza, subs, or even something from the local store next door.
We know you’ve worked hard and accomplished a lot. Now’s your chance to celebrate your success. To enter, all you have to do is post a picture on the social media of your choice using #VSACDelivers and tag @802VSAC. This is the time to get creative with stickers, emojis, or other fun filters. Consider a favorite memory, pics with friends, or accomplishment.
VSAC will randomly select 5 winners every Friday at 4:30 pm, and we’ll comment on your photo to let you know you’ve won. Once you’re notified, we’ll work with you to arrange for takeout from your favorite local restaurant or food business.
Each winner will also receive a $50 Gift of College card from Vermont’s 529 savings plan, the Vermont Higher Education Investment Plan, administered by VSAC. The card can be used for the student’s future education expenses for college or training.
Added up, it’s $100 in value waiting for each of the 30 lucky winners.
Plus, every VT high school grad of 2020 who posts a photo using the #VSACDelivers and tags @802VSAC qualifies for the grand drawing for $529 from VHEIP to be held by June 30, 2020.
So, Class of 2020, let’s start celebrating your amazing accomplishments … in a slightly different way in this very different year. We’re so proud of each of you … and we’re putting our money where your mouth is to show it!
