College Savings Mississippi Offering Scholarship through Art Contest

College Savings Mississippi, a program through the State Treasurer’s Office offering two college savings plans, is hosting a scholarship opportunity to any Mississippi resident Pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade. A $529 Mississippi Affordable College Savings (MACS) Program scholarship will be awarded to the winner of each age division through an Art Contest. For the Contest, Mississippi students are asked to create a work of art that reflects “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Parents and legal guardians must submit the Art Entry Form for a chance to win $529 towards a MACS account for the benefit of the child. The age divisions are: Pre-K through 2nd grade; 3rd – 5th grade; 6-8th grade; 9th-12th grade. Each entry must be postmarked by March 31, 2015.
