Vote for a Local School District During Meredith Village Savings Bank's "What's not to "Like"?" Technology Grant Contest

MEREDITH — Meredith Village Savings Bank (MVSB) is excited to launch a two-month education-themed Facebook contest, during which community members will have the opportunity to vote for a local school district to win a $3,000 grant.

Over the summer, the Bank reached out local school administrators and asked how they could benefit from an additional $3,000 in technology resources; their responses will be posted to MVSB's Facebook page now through October 31 and community members are encouraged to review the submissions and vote for the district they believe most deserves the grant.

Eligible voters that place a vote prior to October 31, and provide their name and contact information will also be entered to win one of five iPad Minis – a win-win for local school districts and community members.

To vote, visit MVSB's Facebook page, www.facebook.com/MeredithVillageSavingsBank, and click on the "What's not to "Like"?" contest tab located beneath the page's cover photo. Once on the voting page, review the school district submissions, check the "vote" box next to the school district you want to vote for and click submit.

MVSB regularly displays its commitment to financial education through their student savings account program, participation in "Teach Children to Save Day," sponsorship of financial fitness and homeownership courses and other educational events and programs for area residents. To coordinate with the education-themed contest, MVSB will be posting helpful financial tips and resources for consumers of all ages on their Facebook page. They encourage you to share these resources with your friends, children and family members to help spread financial education across our communities.

The iPad Sweepstakes is open to U.S., New Hampshire residents, 18 years or older. The School District Contest is open to districts with a school in one of the nine towns with a Meredith Village Savings Bank office. For official sweepstakes rules and how to enter, visit any of MVSB's 11 offices or www.mvsb.com/contest. Meredith Village Savings Bank, Apple, Inc. and Facebook are not affiliated. This contest is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with, Facebook or Apple, Inc.

Privacy and security are of the utmost importance at MVSB and contact information is only being collected for the purpose of notifying iPad winners. Your vote will remain anonymous and MVSB will not share, sell or use your personal information for any other purpose.
