Read and win money for college

The Connecticut Higher Education Trust (CHET) is sponsoring “Reading Makes Cent$,” a summer reading program for children in kindergarten through eighth grades.  Deadline is Aug. 16.

Any child who reads this summer is eligible to win a $250 CHET direct-sold 529 college savings account. CHET is partnering with the Connecticut Library Consortium and Connecticut State Library to make reading a priority this summer. Eight winners — one from each county in the state — will be chosen at random.

Parents and guardians may enter their child(ren) online at or visit their local participating library. Official promotion rules and regulations are also available at No purchase necessary.
