Equity Trust to Reward Subject of Awkward School Portrait with Education Savings Account

May 16, 2014

Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) May 16, 2014

Equity Trust is seeking the most awkward old student portraits in the company's inaugural Throwback for Your Student's Future Contest.

The company, which is a custodian of self-directed IRAs, 401(k)s, Coverdell Education Savings Accounts (CESAs) and Health Savings Accounts (HSAs), is accepting old student portraits featuring big glasses, bad hair, braces or anything else that make the photos entertaining, all in the name of helping a future student save for education expenses.

People will be able to visit the contest website to view all entries and vote for the best – or in this case, worst – photo. The top vote-getter will have the annual fee* on one Equity Trust CESA account waived for 2014, in addition to receiving admission for two to the company's 2014 Equity Wealth Building Summit and a complete set of 2013 Equity University Networking Conference audio recordings. Voters won't be left out of the prize winning, either; one random voter will also be selected to win a prize package.

The CESA account, which can grow tax-free, can help students save for tuition as well as other school-related expenses.

To be qualified for entry into the contest, entrants must be among the first 20 people to submit all of the following: one portrait-style school photograph (group or other photo types will not be accepted); name; phone number; and email address to marketingetc(at)trustetc(dot)com. The entry period ends at 5 p.m. ETMay 20, 2014.

Entries will be posted for voting on the Throwback for Your Student's Future Contest website beginning May 22, 2014. Everyone who votes will be entered to win a prize as well. One random winner will also have the annual fee* on an Equity Trust CESA account waived for 2014, as well as the 2013 Equity University Networking Conference audio recordings.

Throwback for Your Student's Future Contest participants and voters do not need to be existing clients to enter. Grand-prize winners who aren't already a client will have their setup fee waived as well.
