VSAC graduation: free takeout

WINOOSKI — Graduation for high school seniors will be very different this year — no big crowds and ceremonies. Each school is coming up with a way to make graduation still celebratory and meaningful while under COVID-19 strictures. Vermont Student Assistance Corporation (VSAC) has come up with something special for this year’s graduating senior class: Takeout, on them.
VSAC will pay $50 toward takeout for five senior winners each week, now through June 26. Meals could be pizza, subs, or even something from the local store next door.

“We know you’ve worked hard and accomplished a lot. Now’s your chance to celebrate your success,” VSAC says. By posting a picture of themselves using #VSACDelivers and tag @802VSAC on social media. VSAC encourages seniors to get creative with stickers, emojis, or other fun filters, and to consider a favorite memory, pictures with friends, or accomplishment.
VSAC will randomly select five winners every Friday at 4:30 p.m. They will comment on the winning photos and then work with winners to arrange for takeout from their favorite local restaurant or food business.

Each winner also receives a $50 Gift of College card from the Vermont Higher Education Investment Plan, Vermont’s 529 college savings plan, administered by VSAC. The card can be used for the student’s future education expenses. Everyone who posts a photo using the #VSACDelivers and tags @802VSAC qualifies for the grand drawing for $529 from VHEIP to be held by June 30, 2020.
