First National Bank  has made a five-year commitment to Creston Dollars for Scholars.  Dollars for Scholars is a national program under Scholarship America.  The Creston Dollars for Scholars chapter was started in 1999, and the chapter gave its first scholarship in 2000.

The Creston Dollars for Scholars mission is to provide scholarships for post-secondary education and promote community pride. 

Creston Dollars for Scholars is involved with the READS program, and also holds and essay contest for fourth through eight grades, and every class has a winner.  The students are given a topic to write about, and their teacher chooses what they feel are the best three out of their class.  Then, a winner is picked from those three.

Creston Dollars for Scholars Donation can be mailed to: Creston Dollars for Scholars, PO Box 194, Creston, IA 50801.
