Our 2018 Scholarship Contest Recap

This year's 2018 Scholarship Contest was incredible! We visited 22 schools in northwest Alabama and south central Tennessee with our video booth and we asked students to record a 30-second video about how their education will benefit their community. We recorded 195 student videos and learned how passionate students are about investing in their community and making the world a better place. Although we had so many great entries, we could only have three winners and they are Rachel Phillips, Sara Beth Searcy, and Sarah Cobb! We couldn't be happier for them and we can't wait to see what great things they do next. Congratulations!

Students, friends, and family members were able to vote for their favorite videos during the last week of April and the student with the highest number of votes from each participating school won an Amazon Echo Dot. So much hard work and creativity was put into these videos and we are so proud of these students.

Check out these comments from this year's first place winner, Rachel Phillips, and a participating couselor from Wilson High School, Keith Hurston.

“I saw this scholarship contest as an opportunity to share the passion and desire God has placed in my heart with others, so I did the video with no clue as to how it would turn out. It was definitely not what I expected, in a great way.” - Rachel Phillips, Listerhill Scholarship Contest $5,000 Winner

“The Listerhill video contest is an exciting way for students to express their goals and ambitions. The video contest allows the students to incorporate their creative spirit in describing how education will help them reach their goals.” - Keith Hurston, Wilson High School Counselor

Thank you to everyone who participated this year. We couldn't have done this without you. Looking forward to seeing our next group of students in 2019!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is a land loan?

    A land loan provides you with financing to secure a lot of land and cover the costs for up to 20 years. With Listerhill, you can get a loan on unimproved land. 

    Once you’re ready to build, you can secure a different type of loan to cover construction costs.

  • Who is a HELOC best for?

    If you aren’t sure how much you’ll need to borrow or when you'll need it, a Home Equity Line of Credit is a great option. Access ongoing cash for a set period of up to 10 years with low minimum payments until your withdrawal period is complete. Contrary to a Home Equity Loan, the interest on a HELOC is a variable rate and may be impacted by the status of the economy.

  • Who is a Home Equity Loan best for?

    If you’re the type of person who takes a big-picture view when planning your financial decisions, a home equity loan may make the most sense. Since you’re borrowing a fixed amount at a fixed rate, you can plan how much you’ll pay for the loan in the long run from day one.

  • What can home equity loans be used for?

    Home equity loans provide you with the opportunity to chase dreams to the fullest. Enjoy a vacation with the whole family, invest in a household remodeling project, or even finance an upcoming vehicle purchase with only a few clicks.  If you can dream it, you can achieve it!

  • What type of requirements exist for home equity loans?

    Home equity loans rely on a loan to value ratio (LTV) to disburse funds, meaning that your credit score and home equity value should be fairly substantial to take advantage of all possible benefits. For assistance in the home equity loan pre-approval process, please speak with your local Listerhill Credit Union branch.
