A message from VSAC: Our commitment to racial and social justice >
WINOOSKI (May 15, 2020) – 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. All you have to do is post a picture 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.
We’ll randomly select 5 winners every Friday at 4:30, and we’ll comment on your photo to let you know you’ve won. We’ll then work with you to arrange for takeout from your favorite local restaurant or food business.
Each winner also receives a $50 Gift of College card from the Vermont Higher Education Investment Plan, Vermont’s 529 college savings plan, administered by VSAC. The card can be used for the student’s future education expenses. Plus, everyone 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.
