PHOENIX, AZ – FirstBank, one of the nation’s largest privately held banks, announced in October, a video contest that would award a $20,000 cash prize and personalized marketing campaign to two grand prize winners. With FirstBank’s tagline of ‘banking for good’ in mind, entrants from Arizona and Colorado were asked to submit a video demonstrating how their organization is committed to positively impacting customers, communities, or employees.

STC was up to the challenge and was selected as a finalist out of over 175 submissions. Although not awarded the grand prize, Michelle Bonjour, co-founder of STC’s Immunization Ambassador program, was still thrilled to have the opportunity to showcase the work they are doing.

“We have such an amazing group of employees who really care about our mission AND about the local community so any time we get to tell that story is a win for us” said Michelle. “The Immunization Ambassador program is our grassroots movement to increase positive vaccine messaging and we will continue to grow those efforts even without the prize money”

Impressed with the other submissions, CEO Mike Popovich, noted “I watched all the finalists’ videos and each one was better then the last. It’s an honor to be in the company of such good organizations and I want to thank First Bank for the opportunity.”
