Greater San Antonio Chamber of Commerce hosts event for student artists.    

PlainsCapital Bank celebrated San Antonio-area winners of the “Winning the Money Game!” poster contest at an event hosted by the Greater San Antonio Chamber of Commerce on Aug. 9. The poster contest, sponsored by PlainsCapital Bank and the Consumer Credit Counseling Service of Greater Dallas (CCCS), challenged students across Texas to illustrate financial literacy and the theme “Winning the Money Game!”.

More than 180 entries were submitted by kindergarten through 12th grade students statewide. PlainsCapital Bank awarded contest winners and their schools with prize money and certificates of recognition.

“The San Antonio business community, the Chamber and our elected officials have come together in recent months with a focused effort to improve early childhood education and financial literacy in our city,” said Mike Molak, president of PlainsCapital Bank San Antonio. “PlainsCapital Bank is proud to play a role in this endeavor and appreciates the opportunity to give back to the communities we serve in a meaningful way.”

The San Antonio event featured 40 colorful and creative posters by student artists. The posters will be on display at the San Antonio Mission Branch Library during the month of September.
