Ohio Saves Drawing Winner
Thanks to all who participated in the Ohio Saves Week contest. After sharing your #imsavingfor poster on a social media page, congratulations to Jolene Williamson from Caldwell, Ohio. She was our random drawing winner of tickets for the March 1 Ohio State Buckeyes basketball game against the Purdue Boilermakers. Jolene is saving for an upcoming family vacation.
As part of America Saves Week 2015, Ohio Saves partners with Ohio State University Extension and county commissions to spread the saving message by urging its network to promote good savings behavior and encourage individuals to assess their own savings status.
