NEST529 “Why I Want to Go to College”

Writing Sweepstakes Now Open

(Lincoln, NE) For the 19th year, Nebraska State Treasurer John Murante and the Omaha Storm Chasers will be sponsoring the “Why I Want to Go to College” writing sweepstakes, with entries due Thursday, April 1, 2021.

Prizes will be awarded to 12 winners in seventh and eighth grades who will receive contributions to the Nebraska Educational Savings Trust (NEST) college savings accounts – including $2,000 for first place, $1,000 for second place, and $500 for third place. Three winners will be chosen from each of Nebraska’s three Congressional districts, and three winners will be chosen from outside Nebraska.

Each Nebraska winner will receive four tickets to an upcoming Storm Chasers game at Werner Park in Papillion at where they will be recognized during a brief ceremony.

“There are many challenges facing students in this day and age, but this event is a wonderful way for students in public, private and home school environments to focus on the positives – their goals for life and the importance of saving for their future education. Efforts like this not only provides an additional chance for students to sharpen their writing skills, but it makes it more likely every Nebraskan has the opportunity graduate vocational training or a higher educational institution debt-free. I’m looking forward to meeting the winners and their families at Werner Park,” said Treasurer Murante.

Families can save for college for their children and grandchildren through NEST529, the state-sponsored 529 college savings program that allows for tax-free investments and tax-free qualified withdrawals. Nebraska account owners can qualify for up to $10,000 a year in state income tax deductions.

Students are asked to reflect on the value of education and what they hope to achieve through higher education. Entries are limited to 750 words and should be sent to Andrea Bedore, Omaha Storm Chasers, 12356 Ballpark Way, Papillion, NE 68046.

Information about the writing sweepstakes is available on the Treasurer’s website at www.treasurer.nebraska.gov/csp/.

Murante Encourages Nebraskans to Search for Lost Cash, Other Valuables on Unclaimed Property Day

(Lincoln, NE) In light of the very first Unclaimed Property Day, Nebraska Treasurer John Murante today encouraged all Nebraskans to visit www.NebraskaLostCash.gov to see if any of the $400 million of funds or property being held by the Unclaimed Property Division of the Treasurer’s office might belong to them.

Nearly 33 million people in the United States – 1 in every 10 – has what the industry calls unclaimed property: financial accounts or items of value in which the owner has not initiated any activity for a number of years. When that happens, and the company cannot locate the owner, the money or properties are submitted to the state. Common examples include unpaid life insurance benefits, forgotten bank accounts, and unused rebate cards.

Last year, the Nebraska Treasurer’s Unclaimed Property Division returned $10,328,948.47 in unclaimed property and paid 11,406 claims.

“My office is tasked with returning unclaimed property – in whatever form – to its rightful owner. I’m proud of the job my staff has done to return these funds to Nebraskans especially during the uncertainty of COVID-19,” Murante said. “It’s your money and it should be with you. This is a free service, no one should have to pay to have what is rightfully yours returned to you.”

To increase awareness of unclaimed property, the National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators (NAUPA) is launching the first National Unclaimed Property Day on February 1st and encouraging people to search www.unclaimed.org/search or www.NebraskaLostCash.gov to determine if a state is holding their property. Individuals are encouraged to search their name, a maiden name, or the name of a business or non-profit. The search is free.

2020 10 07 LOGO CHILD SAVING INSTITUTE

All children need a secure place to learn and grow. The ideal place should be in their own home, however many kids are not that fortunate.

In times of neglect or abuse, a child must sometimes be removed from their home at a moment's noticed and placed in a warm, safe place. Kids of all ages, from birth through high school, sometimes need the help of the Child Saving Institute.

CSI helps foster parents and biological families learn the skills they need for a safe, well-cared-for, and loving family life.During this unsettling time of covid-19, the Murray Christian Church is collecting essential cleaning items for the Child Saving Institute.

If you would like to donate, here are some things they could use:Pine Sol, Lysol Disinfectant Spray, sanitizing wipes, latex and powder-free disposable gloves, (L & XL), and hand sanitizer.

Please bring items to Murray Christian Church, 304 W Young St, Murray, NE on Wednesdays, Thursdays or Fridays, between the hours of 10 - 2:00. You may call the church ahead of time, 402-235-2527, to be sure someone will be there to assist you.

Thank you for helping to keep these children, (and the CSI staff), healthy and happy!.

canned food box 1

Even during the summer and amid the Covid19 crisis, the Conestoga Backpack Program continues to furnish food to local families in need. The program serves the Murray, Nehawka, Union and Beaver Lake areas in southeast Nebraska, and will not turn anyone away.

Just by adding a few of the items listed below to your shopping list and picking them up, you'll be helping someone in a big way. Keep in mind that some of the children are very young and are possibly 'preparing' their own meals, so easy-to-open containers are a good option for little hands.


Canned or boxed pasta
Canned soup
Granola bars
Fruit snacks
Dry pasta
Spaghetti sauce
Dry soup mixes
Canned meat (chicken, tuna)
Boxed prepared meal kits (Hamburger Helper, Rice-a-Roni)
Peanut butter
Jelly
Canned fruit and vegetables

Also needed are hygienic supplies, toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, cotton swabs, tissues and toilet paper.

To make a monetary donation instead, a check made payable to 'CONESTOGA BACKPACK PROGRAM' may be mailed or deposited at Cornerstone Bank, 102 W Main St, Murray, NE 68409. 100% of all monies collected is used for food and hygienic supplies for the families.

To have the items picked up, call Jill at 402-660-3543 to make arrangements. As another alternative, you may drop them off at Cornerstone Bank in Murray or at their Beaver Lake location.

Your help is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
