GHS Federal Credit Union and Kasasa, an award-winning financial technology and marketing provider, announce a national and local contest in partnership with NBC Universal offering the chance to win cash prizes to help people connect this holiday season. Local contestants can win $2,500 from GHS Federal Credit Union and can also submit their entry to the national contest where one grand prize winner will receive $25,000 and two runner ups will receive $10,000. 

Kasasa is partnering with local community banks and credit unions across the country as an extension of their “These Are My People” contest. To enterGHS Federal Credit Union’s local contest, people can submit a photo or video with a short explanation of why they want to win to http://www.winwithkasasa.com/ghsfcu. Just by entering, local contestants can win $100 gift cards. They can also share their post on social channels using the hashtags #TheseAreMyPeople, #ghsfcu, #ghsfederalcreditunion, and #Kasasa to encourage friends to enter to win. 

Kasasa’s “These Are My People” contest provides community members the opportunity to share their story and how the prize money will help them connect with their loved ones, from buying flights to visit hometown friends not seen since the pandemic started, to helping a local small business that is struggling with rising costs, or to make a final mortgage payment ahead of retirement for grandparents. 

“We believe your money should do more for you and your community. This holiday season, we’re putting our money where our mouth is and giving back to help people spend time with their loved ones and strengthen their connections,” said Gabe Krajicek, CEO of Kasasa. “We’re helping community banks and credit unions do what they do best, give back to their communities.”

The contest runs from November 7 – December 7. Local winners will be announced on December 10 and receive the $2,500 cash prize sponsored by GHS Federal Credit Union. Local contestants can also visit www.kasasacontest.com to submit their entry to win the national contest, sponsored by Kasasa, which will award one winner with $25,000 and two winners with $10,000. National winners will be selected by a Kasasa panel of judges and be announced on December 19.  

“Our community is unique and full of rich stories that weave the web of who we are. These past few years have exemplified the utmost perseverance and strength our community members and business embody, and we are so excited to be able to offer the opportunity for individuals to provide examples of resilience their loved ones have put forth. We invite our community to share their stories with us and each other not only for the chance to win cash this holiday season, but to give a shout out and shed some light on your loved ones and all they do.”
