The bank received 52 total entries from around the Greater Boston area.

Nine-year-old Rori Sasin of Canton was among the twelve prizewinners, receiving a $50 runner-up prize in the 8-14 age bracket. In all, the bank awarded two $200 grand prizes, two $100 Facebook prizes (determined exclusively by the number of Likes their entries received on Facebook), and eight $50 runner-up prizes. Other winners hailed from Randolph, Stoughton, Weymouth, Braintree, Roslindale, Hanson and Pembroke.
