WATERTOWN LIBRARY is offering an investor education and protection program called "DASH FOR THE STASH" WITH a $1,OOO PRIZE for one lucky winner.
The Watertown Library is participating in the DASH for the STASH, a contest taking place from April 15 - May 15, 2015 as part of Financial Literacy Month. The statewide winner for Connecticut will be awarded $1,000 to open or add to an Individual Retirement Account (IRA), thanks to the Investor Protection Institute (IPI) and the Connecticut Department of Banking.
The DASH for the STASH will play out at 35 libraries across Connecticut. The contest works much like a scavenger hunt. But instead of collecting objects, players gather information and leave answers to quiz questions.
To play, participants must go to the Watertown Library at 470 Main Street in Watertown, or the Oakville Branch Library at 55 Davis Street in Oakville, to find four displayed posters. They will read each poster, access the quiz question and choose an answer. The posters cover topics of importance to savers and investors including understanding investment fees, finding financial advisors, avoiding fraud, and learning about investment products.
"The easiest way to play DASH for the STASH is to use a smart phone or mobile device to scan each poster's QR code, but you can also use one of the library's public access computers to participate.", says reference librarian Mark Grossane.
The library has on display, and available for loan, a selection of books on finance and investing from its permanent collection.
