Submitted by O Bee Credit Union

Obee signO Bee Credit Union is offering a $500 first-place prize to a Yelm High School student as part of a contest to design the best image for O Bee’s new “Famous Yelm” debit card.

The contest will be administered through the Yelm High School ASB Office. Students may use original photography, sketches or other media to create the design. There is also a website where students may download an electronic template, then submit the design electronically. The design must include the word “Yelm,” and attempt to capture what Yelm means to the community.

“The City of Yelm has a distinct history and unique character all its own. We know that. There’s a lot of community pride in Yelm and who better than the high school students to capture the image that reflects that pride?” said Lee Wojnar, VP of Marketing at O Bee.

The winning design will be featured on the new “Famous Yelm” debit card which will be available at all O Bee branches in early summer. There will also be a $250 prize for the second place winner, and a $100 prize for the third place winner. Only the first place design will appear on the card. Currently O Bee offers special debit cards for the Olympia and Rainier communities, featuring iconic images from O Bee’s historic roots as the original credit union of the Olympia Brewery.

All entries are due by 3:00 pm on Friday, May 15, 2015 and must be submitted to the ASB Office at Yelm High School,
O Bee Credit Union’s Yelm Branch, or to www.FamousYelmCard.com. Contest open only to Yelm High School students.
