First National Bank Announces Piggy Bank Pageant Winners

August 26, 2020

First National Bank and Trust Company is pleased to announce the winners of its annual Piggy Bank Pageant held at Clinton Elementary this spring.

This year’s contest was altered due to COVID-19 and became a virtual contest. Students could pick up piggy banks at several bank locations, decorate them at home and submit them with a picture. They also were asked to submit at least one sentence detailing what they would do with the money they would save in their piggy banks.

In the upper elementary division, the 1st place winner was Emerson Moody. Emerson will be a 4th grader at Clinton Elementary this fall. The 2nd place winner was McCoy Moody. He will be a 5th grader at CES this fall. In the lower elementary division, the 1st place winner was Nora Utterback and taking 2nd place was Paige Lamar. Nora and Paige will both be kindergartners this fall.

Upper elementary winner, Emerson Moody, would save money in her bank until she had enough to buy her friend a present. Lower elementary winner, Nora Utterback, would save her money for a baby doll and share the rest with her mom! 

The Piggy Bank Pageant is a competition sponsored by First National Bank and Trust Company in which students learn the four things you can do with your money: earn, save, spend and share. The contest and financial literacy lesson are part of the bank’s commitment to providing financial literacy education to students in the area.

If you or your students would like to learn more about earning, spending, saving and sharing money please contact First National Bank and Trust Company’s Financial Literacy Coordinator Connie Unruh at Connie can provide you with resources and materials to teach your children how to be wise with their money.
