PNB holds scholarship contest

KEWANEE — Peoples National Bank of Kewanee and its banking centers in Annawan, Bradford, Manlius, Sheffield and Tampico invite high school seniors to enter its annual local scholarship essay contest.

This year’s essay theme is “How do community banks make dreams come true?”

PNB will choose up to three winners based on the provided judging criteria, and these students will receive a cash contribution of $250. The winning entries will then be sponsored and submitted by PNB to the annual statewide scholarship competition held by the Community Bankers Association of Illinois’ Foundation for Community Banking.

Information packets are available at all PNB locations. They include contest rules and specific essay guidelines. Essays and entry forms are due to any PNB locations by noon Jan. 19.
