State officials said nearly 700 families have entered Tennessee's college savings $10,000 scholarship giveway.

This month, ten kids in Tennessee have been set to win a $1,000 college scholarship into a TNStars account, just for entering online.

The TNStars College Savings 529 Program was designed to give Tennessee families investment options at a low cost to help them put aside money for higher education expenses.

Tennesseans can invest directly with the program and money can be withdrawn tax-free from a TNStars account as long as it is used for qualified post-secondary education expenses.

Tennessee residents age 21 and older can enter to win on behalf of a child now through December 27. One entry is good for the entire contest period.
