Youth Educational Incentive Prize Winners

To encourage youth to attend and excel at school, CIRI conducts twice-yearly cash prize drawings for students in grades 7-12 who maintain a grade point average of 3.5 or above and students with perfect attendance. Each winner receives a $100 gift card. Please join us in congratulating the following CIRI shareholders and confirmed descendants who qualified for the drawing on the basis of their first-semester GPA, attendance record or both.
