Summer Reading Winners Promote College Savings in Kentucky
The Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority will start eight children on the road to college savings by opening accounts for them with initial $1,000 deposits. The children are the winners of a summer reading program sponsored by the KHEAA and the state Department for Library and Archives.
They will be honored at a ceremony Monday in Frankfort in the Capitol Rotunda.
In addition to the young readers, the libraries where they borrowed the books will also be winners. The libraries will each receive $500.
September is College Savings Month in Kentucky.
A news release from KHEAA did not reveal the names of the winners.
