(Salt Lake City) Herriman High School senior Aliyah Hagen won a $1,000 Utah Educational Savings Plan (UESP) college savings scholarship account for her entry in the UESP and StepUp to Higher Education’s Make Your Mark bookmark contest. Her bookmark was selected from more than 1,500 entries.
Aliyah, a student in Jordan School District, was honored with other winners at an awards luncheon held November 7 at Zions Bank headquarters in Salt Lake City. Make Your Mark, in its seventh year, was held in conjunction with Governor Gary Herbert’s declaration of September as College Savings Month. The contest advocates saving and preparing for higher education and promotes reading and the arts.
Aliyah said her love of photography inspired her bookmark design, which featured a retro-style camera. Her digital media teacher and former yearbook advisor Brent Cox helped her brainstorm ideas that could connect photography to literature. She settled on the idea that a classic, whether a camera or a book, is “always in style.”
Studying digital media has also given Aliyah a career path. “I’m interested in a business degree and want to start a photography business,” she said. “Right now, I’m waiting to see if I get in to Utah State,” Aliyah said.
Aliyah’s family supports her educational goals. “We’ve always talked to her about going [to college]—not if, but when,” mom Shellie Hagen said. Aliyah can use her $1,000 UESP college savings scholarship account at any college, university, or technical school in the United States or abroad that participates in federal financial aid programs for students.
“Make Your Mark helps students jump-start or add to their college savings,” said Lynne Ward, UESP executive director. “It’s never too early or too late to start saving, and even small amounts go a long way toward helping with higher education costs. Utah families can receive the added benefit of state tax credits for saving.”
