Nicole Aleta of Lakewood is First Financial’s 2012 Reader Rewards Annual Summer Reading Contest Winner.
Aleta, a 7th grader and member of First Financial’s Toms River Branch took part in the competition by reading 13 books during the entry period of July 2 to August 31. First Financial members up to age 18 were eligible to read books and earn $1 rewards per book (up to 10 books), and with each book read, they were also entered into a drawing to win the grand prize of a $100 Barnes & Noble gift card (number of entries unlimited).
“Summer is a wonderful time to teach children the joys of reading,” said Issa Stephan, President and CEO of First Financial. “We thought this would be a fun way to encourage them to do so, and open their eyes to a world of imagination.”
