Egg Bowl Tuition Toss Entry Forms Now Available
It is time again to register for the Egg Bowl Tuition Toss! On Thanksgiving Day, November 22, when Ole Miss and Mississippi State face off, College Savings Mississippi, Echo, and I will be there to host the Tuition Toss at halftime. 

Two contestants, who are students at one of Mississippi’s public, four-year colleges or universities, will face off to see who can toss more footballs – up to 30 - through our targets in just 30 seconds. We will give away a $2,529 MACS scholarship to our lucky winner and a $529 MACS scholarship to our runner-up. With the average tuition for two full-time semesters at Mississippi’s public, four-year schools over $7,000, these scholarships can really help.

Entry forms and full rules are available starting today by clicking here . They will be accepted until 11:45 pm on Tuesday, November 13. Contestants and alternates will be chosen at random. If you are currently enrolled at one of Mississippi’s eight great public, four-year institutions and going to the Egg Bowl, you should enter today!
Come Get Your Unclaimed Property at the State Fair
We are headed to the Mississippi State Fair for the sixth year in a row to help reunite Mississippians with their unclaimed property. Over the past five years, Fair-goers have initiated over 7,300 claims and collected over $11.2 million through our Fair booths. We are looking forward to finding even more Mississippians money this year.

Our booth will operate in the Trademart building starting at 5 pm on opening day, Wednesday, October 3. The booth will be open from 11 am to 5 pm, with some evening hours as well, each day until the Fair ends on Sunday, October 14.

Our Unclaimed Property Team has been on the road quite a bit lately. They were at Harrisville Day in Simpson County on Saturday, September 22 and Richland’s Highway 49 Festival in Rankin County on Saturday, September 29.  And, they will be at the Fall Festival in Clinton on Saturday, October 13, too.

Since I took office in January 2012, we have helped reunite people with almost $90 million in unclaimed property. That is 56% of all the unclaimed property distributed since this program began in 1982.
Great Day in Clinton Last Week
I had the opportunity to spend the day in Clinton last week with many current and upcoming leaders, like Bradley Pope and his 9 th Grade Personal Finance students at Sumner Hill Junior High School, the Clinton Rotary, Mayor Phil Fisher, Mississippi College President Blake Thompson, and Alderwoman Jan Cossitt. I’m looking forward to visiting in DeSoto County and Meridian this week and speaking to the Madison Ridgeland Rotary, as well!
