Vantage Credit Union Announces Two Winners in Its Summer Dream BIG! Contest

Zoe Green, of Festus, and Elizabeth Moss, of Wright City, were each awarded $1,000 towards the purchase of a new computer for having the two winning entries in Vantage Credit Union’s annual Dream BIG! Contest. Green and Moss' names were randomly drawn from the nearly 40 entries received during the contest period, which took place August 1 through September 4.

In order to qualify, each contestant (ages 11-17) submitted an online entry explaining his/her dream for the future. Green’s entry described her dream of becoming a pharmacist. She is currently taking college-level classes in preparation for pharmacy school and is waiting patiently for an answer regarding the job application she submitted at a local pharmacy. Moss’s entry, entitled ‘Lights, Camera, Action,’ focused on her dream to pursue an acting career. She is currently acting in an upcoming performance of Tumbleweeds presented by the Young People’s Theatre at St. Charles Community College.

When it was time to shop for the computer, both girls were accompanied by their father. Green chose an HP touch-screen laptop and a printer.

“I love it!” exclaimed Zoe Green, “I just kept telling myself I was going to win a computer, and it happened.”

Moss chose an HP-Envy touch-screen laptop and software. 

“I am just so thankful for this gift,” exclaimed Elizabeth. “I love it! My new laptop has great speakers, a really big screen and is so fast. Thank you Vantage Credit Union!”

Vantage Credit Union congratulates Zoe and Elizabeth on a job well done and wishes them well in their future endeavors.
