To encourage youth to attend and excel at school, CIRI conducts $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 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 the end of January, or the end of June, 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 ten days of attempts, the prize will be awarded to an alternative winner, selected in accordance with contest rules.
