SOME SCHOOLS COULD WIN $500 TOO.

The CHET Dream Big! Competition promotes creativity and invites Connecticut K-8 students and their families to start thinking about college—and how to save for it. Students can win a CHET direct-sold 529 college savings account by dreaming about what they will do after college and entering the competition. Schools can win, too—with a fun, creative activity for students and a chance to win $500.

A maximum of eight (8) schools statewide, one (1) school in each of the state’s eight counties, will be awarded a $500 prize. The winning school in each county must submit a minimum of 100 entries on behalf of Entrants and have the highest number of Entries in that county in order to be eligible to receive a prize.

The CHET Dream Big! Competition provides a great opportunity to promote the benefits of a college education and inspire students to dream big about their future.

We hope you and your classroom, school or district will participate in the CHET Dream Big! Competition and offer your students an opportunity to think creatively about their future—and win funds to help make it possible.
