Youth Educational Incentives

Submit Report Cards by June 30 for a Chance to Win $100!

YouthEducationChildren need excellent schools, nutritious meals, strong families and supportive, caring communities to help them make good choices, stay on track and graduate on time. Parents and other caretakers can assist by making reading a priority, monitoring homework and limiting screen time. For its part, CIRI provides support to many organizations that promote and provide educational opportunities and activities for students (grades K to 12), and gives priority to projects that serve low-income and disadvantaged youth.

CIRI also encourages youth to attend and excel at school by conducting $100 cash prize drawings for students who maintain a grade point average (GPA) of 3.5 or above and students with perfect attendance. (Perfect attendance is defined as missing no more than four classes in the reporting period.) CIRI shareholders and confirmed CIRI descendants enrolled in grades 7 through 12 are eligible to participate.

Drawings are conducted twice a year. In February, and again in July, nine winners in each category are randomly selected to receive $100 cash cards, including three youth who reside in Anchorage, three youth who reside in Alaska outside of Anchorage, and three youth who reside outside of Alaska. Youth may not win more than one award per semester.

To enter, eligible youth must submit a copy of the report card for the immediately preceding semester to CIRI Shareholder Relations by Jan. 31 or June 30, as applicable. The report card must clearly show the minor’s name, the time period being reported on, the minor’s grades and attendance record, and the name and contact information of the minor’s school. CIRI will attempt to contact the winner using the contact information in its files. If the winner cannot be contacted within 10 days of attempts, the prize will be awarded to an alternative winner, selected in accordance with contest rules.
