Not only could it win you $1,000, it could also become the latest innovation in banking.  Conestoga Bank is offering a $1,000 scholarship to one high school senior or college freshman with the best idea about what the future of banking includes!

To enter, respond to the following essay question in 500 words or less:

Mobile and online banking will only become a bigger part of our everyday life. Many banks, including ours, have already implemented technology like Text Banking (where you can text to check your balance) and Mobile Deposit (take a picture of your check with your smart phone to deposit it) but we know we’re just scratching the surface on developing more convenient ways to bank. 

WHAT DO YOU THINK THE NEXT BIG THING IN BANKING WILL BE?

Be creative in your answer. Consider what YOU would like to see from a bank but also be analytical of what consumers need from their bank – convenience and security are two primary factors to consider.
