West Virginia Treasurer John Perdue is once again partnering with the state's elementary school students as they prepare for the future.
It is the sixth annual "When I Grow Up" contest sponsored by Smart 529 and the treasurer's office.
Perdue spent Wednesday morning handing out entry packets at Mary C. Snow West Side Elementary School in Charleston. The contest allows students, with the help of a parent or guardian, to submit an essay of a hundred words or less about what they want to be when they grow up and why.
Three age group winners in five different regions be awarded $500 scholarships, with the grand prize winner receiving a $5,000 Smart 529 scholarship.
Each regional winner's school also gets $500.
Entry forms will be available at elementary schools throughout the state in the next couple of weeks. You also can download a form from smart529.com. The deadline to enter is Feb. 22. The "When I Grow Up" contest winners will be announced this spring.
