2020 Scholarship Contest

Learn more about our scholarship opportunities and how you can get involved!

Every year we give scholarships to high school seniors. This year we are giving away one $5,000 Listerhill Excellence scholarship and one $2,500 People's Choice scholarship. To top that off, we are giving $1,000 to the schools of this years' winners! 

Contest Details

Each year, we host the Listerhill Scholarship Contest and invite students from all over North Alabama and southern Tennessee to answer the question "How will your education benefit your community?" The first place winner will receive a $5,000 Listerhill Excellence scholarship, selected by the Listerhill Scholarship Committee. One runner up, chosen by the community, will receive a People's Choice $2,500 scholarship. For the People's Choice $2,500 scholarship, the community will have the opportunity to vote on their favorite submissions from March 16th, 2020 - March 20th, 2020. This scholarship will be decided completely by the community's votes. These scholarships are applicable at any college of the student's choice!

Video Recommendations & Grading Criteria

All students are encouraged to be as creative as possible when recording their scholarship video. We love seeing the incorporation of props, educational assets, music, guests, and more in video submissions.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How long will Listerhill offer the cash giveback?

    The cash giveback is available on eligible loans between Monday, April 6 and Saturday, July 11. However, Listerhill reserves the right to change the ending date at any time.

  • What if I just refinance my Listerhill loan?

    If you refinance your existing Listerhill loan (for example, to get a better rate if your credit score has improved), the loan would not be eligible for the giveback unless you add at least $2,500 to the amount of your loan. Please contact a Member Advocate to discuss your options.

  • What loans are not eligible for the cash giveback?

    Credit cards, shared-secured personal loans, lines of credit, indirect (dealer) loans, commercial loans, mortgage loans, and HELOCS. The giveback also does not apply to deposit products, like savings and checking accounts.

  • What loans are eligible for the cash giveback?

    The cash giveback only applies to new unsecured personal, auto, and recreation loans. The minimum loan amount is $2,500. 

  • Why do credit cards offer cash back?

    Credit card companies can offer cash back because merchants that accept payments via credit card have to pay a percentage of the transaction fee to the credit card company. In this case, the credit card company can decide to share the merchant fee with you in the form of a cash back offer.
