SALT LAKE CITY — Eight Utah students received $1,000 Utah Educational Savings Plan college savings scholarship accounts for their winning entries in the 2016 Make Your Mark bookmark contest.

The awards, sponsored by the savings plan and StepUp to Higher Education social awareness campaign, were given out during a luncheon at Zions Bank’s headquarters earlier this month.

A panel of judges that included Utah Gov. Gary Herbert and first lady Jeanette Herbert selected two winners from each of four grade categories in the contest.

The winners are:

• Sophia Carr, Adams Elementary, Logan School District, K through third grade

• Walker Heiner, North Davis Preparatory Academy, Logan School District, K through third grade

• Kennedy Lopez, Freedom Elementary, Alpine School District, fourth through sixth grade

• Eliana Zinger, Wasatch Elementary, Salt Lake City School District, fourth through sixth grade

• Danju Zoe Liu, Midvale Middle, Canyons School District, seventh through eighth grade

• Elizabeth Martin, Midvale Middle, Canyons School District, seventh through eighth grade

• Aliyah Hagen, Herriman High, Jordan School District, ninth through 12th grade

• Mia Hilton, Sky View High, Cache County School District, ninth through 12th grade

The winning students can use their scholarship accounts to pay for qualified higher education expenses at any college, university, or technical school in the United States or abroad that participates in federal financial aid programs.

In addition, the winners also may see their professionally reproduced bookmark designs handed out at UESP events around Utah.
