August 8, 2022

Youth Saver Caleb Isley holds up his report card2022 marked the twelfth year of Community Bank’s annual Earn While You Learn program. The program paid out over $8,900 to 394 student-customers in the Eastern Oregon and Southeast Washington area. This brings the total paid out since the program began in 2011, to $146,028.

The program is designed to encourage students in their academic success by awarding Community Bank Youth Savings account customers for their good grades. During the months of June and July, all Community Bank branches accepted end-of-the-year report cards from students in 1st through 12th grade. For every top grade (indicated on the grading system used for each school) in a main school subject that appeared on the report card, Community Bank deposited $1, up to $50 into their Community Bank Youth Savings Account.

The Earn While You Learn Program is an annual reward of $1 per top grade, up to $50 annually per student, with
payments given for the whole school year in June and July.
