College Savings Mississippi Getting Ready to Announce Art Contest Winners
Last week, our four special guest judges got together to review the nearly 1,300 entries we received for this year’s College Savings Mississippi Art Contest. It was a tough job as Mississippi students presented some excellent artwork! 

We will announce our winners in the coming week and we will celebrate their future dreams at a reception at the Old Capitol on April 4. First, second, and third place winners in each of our four age divisions (PreK-2 nd , 3 rd -5 th , 6 th -8 th , and 9 th -12 th ) will take home MACS scholarships to help them finance the education that will help them achieve their dreams. And, the teacher who’s class provided the most entries will get a scholarship to distribute as they see fit.

Many thanks to our judges for taking the time to look over all these fantastic entries:

Limeul Eubanks, a visual artist and educator in Arts and World Languages at the Mississippi Department of Education, Office of Secondary Education

Herbert Mays, a portrait artist in Canton

Ricky Nobile, a cartoonist and caricature artist whose works you may have seen in many Mississippi newspapers

Over 400 People Came to Claim their Money in Jackson County
On March 8, our unclaimed property team headed down to Jackson County at the invitation of the Jackson County Board of Supervisors to help reunite county residents with their unclaimed property. From the moment, they arrived, there were people ready to file their paperwork and get started. Over the course of four hours, we helped over 400 people. Many thanks to the County Administration staff and Sheriff’s Deputies who assisted us with helping people as the crowd wrapped around the building! We are busily working the claims right now and getting people their money as quickly as possible!
