How Does the DASH for the STASH Contest Work?

The DASH for the STASH multi-state program is a contest that takes place as part of Money Smart Week (MSW) in April 2016. It features a set of four informational posters posted in designated spots in libraries in participating States and on their websites. Each poster focuses on one investor education and protection topic, and each poster topic features an associated quiz question to answer. To play, participants read the content on each poster, scan the unique QR code to access that topic s quiz question (multiple choice), and submit their answer via smartphone, tablet, or computer. Participants must have the QR app (free download) on a mobile device in order to scan QR codes and access the quiz. Using the QR code is the most efficient way to play.

Each poster is rich in investor education and protection content and it takes approximately 5-10 minutes to read each poster. For each participating state, at least one winner will be selected randomly from among those who answered all of the quiz questions correctly and that person will receive $1,000 to open or add to an IRA.
