Zions awards Park City students for A’s

Zions Bank has been awarding Utah and Idaho students for their hard work earning A’s on their report cards for 10 years now. This year, they have chosen two Park City High School students, Samantha Bush and Griffin Riggs, to receive a $100 scholarship savings account for their fall and winter drawings as part of the "Pays for A’s" program.

The program is open to all Utah and Idaho students, ages 13-18. Students must take their most current report cards into any Zions Bank location to enter and receive $1 for every A deposited into their savings accounts or 50 cents per A if they choose cash. For every A, they are entered to win $100 scholarship prizes and one grand prize worth $1,000 in each state. For more information, visit
