Today, registration opened for the sixth annual College Savings Mississippi Art Contest. Running January 7th through February 28th, students across Mississippi can compete for over $3,600 in Mississippi Affordable College Savings (MACS) scholarships by submitting an original piece of art on the theme, “What do you want to be when you grow up?”
“Each year, this art contest challenges children to look toward their futures and dream about all the opportunities ahead of them,” said Treasurer Lynn Fitch. “And, College Savings Mississippi helps them save for the education they need to achieve those dreams.”
The contest is open to any Mississippi student from Pre-Kindergarten to 12th Grade, whether in a classroom, through an afterschool program, or by homeschooling. Like last year, the classroom or teacher with the most entries will win an additional $100 MACS scholarship to be distributed in the manner he or she determines.
