The Kentucky Department of Financial Institutions, in conjunction with the Investor Protection Institute, is hosting a grant-funded investor education program called DASH for the STASH. The contest period for Kentucky is August/September 2017.
DASH for the STASH is a “scavenger hunt” style contest where individuals visit a host location (participating public or community college library) where the DASH for the STASH posters are displayed. Simply read the posters, go online, and answer four questions. One lucky Kentuckian will win a $1,000 Individual Retirement Account (IRA) contribution!
The primary goal of the DASH program is to impart information on how to save, invest, and protect one’s nest egg.
The following are participating in the 2017 DASH for the STASH in Kentucky:
ADDITIONAL NATIONAL CONTEST
New in 2017 and running independently of the poster version of the contest held at participating locations, there will be a national online DASH for the STASH contest open to all members of the public including those participating in the state contests. The national online version runs for seven months from April 1 through October 31, 2017, and operates in a video game format. National participants will have the opportunity to compete in an online version of the DASH for a chance to win one of seven $150 IRA contributions.
