The Nevada State Treasurer's Office is hosting their third annual 'What Do You Want To Be When You Grow Up' art contest, giving students the chance to earn up to $1,000 in college savings.
The contest is open to students K-12 and is divided into 14 categories, with three grand prizes in each category. The first place winner will be awarded $1,000, second place $500, and third place $250. The money will be deposited in a Future Path 529 college savings account.
"It provides students with a platform to showcase their artistic talents while taking a step towards securing their futures," said Nevada State Treasurer Zach Conine. "We look forward to seeing the inspiring artwork that our students will submit."
The teacher with the most submissions will also receive a $200 gift card.
Art submissions are restricted to 8.5"x11", and must contain the words 'College Savings Nevada'. Entries can be uploaded to the Treasurer's Office website, mailed, or hand-delivered to the College Savings Division at the Grant Sawyer State Building in North Las Vegas.
All entries must be submitted by October 13th.
The winners will be announced at a reception later this year.
