OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — State Treasurer Ken Miller is urging Oklahoma students to keep learning as the long summer break approaches.
Miller is backing the Think Big! Save for College! Sweepstakes, a partnership between the Oklahoma 529 College Savings Plan and the Oklahoma Department of Libraries. Participants will have the chance to win a $2,529 college savings account while continuing to broaden their knowledge during the break.
Miller says the program is a chance for Oklahoma children to continue learning during the summer months through reading and other activities. While kids are engaged in reading, the sweepstakes will remind families about the importance of saving for a child’s college education.
The sweepstakes will award college savings accounts to two Summer Reading Program participants, one from the children’s program and another from the teen program.
