Children ages 13 and younger in the Sunnyside area have the opportunity to earn college scholarships by simply doing one of their favorite activities: coloring.
The Cellular Connection, the largest Verizon premium wireless retailer in the U.S., recently launched its “Color for College” program. The company will donate a $1,500 college scholarship to a student participant at each of its nearly 300 stores.
Participating TCC stores across the U.S. are inviting local families to bring children to a local store to color a pre-printed page from TCC and complete the entry information on the back by Sunday, Aug. 31.
A $1,500 scholarship will be awarded to the winning submission at each participating store in the form of a 529 college savings plan that cannot be redeemed until the student attends college. No purchase is necessary. Winners will be selected in a random drawing on Friday, Sept. 5.
The participating store in Sunnyside is located at 2680 Yakima Valley Highway.
