U.S. are inviting local families to bring their children to the
store to color a pre-printed page from TCC and complete the entry
information on the back. One $1,500 scholarship will be given to the
winning submission at each participating store in the form of a 529

attends college. No purchase necessary. Winners will be selected in
a random drawing on Sept. 5. Parents and guardians of the winners
will be contacted by Sept. 30 with details of how to redeem the
The participating store in Lincoln is located at 1275 Woodlawn Rd.

100,000 backpacks to students across the U.S. during its annual
School Rocks Backpack Giveaway that took place on Aug. 2.
"We are excited to contribute to children’s education through our
‘Culture of Good’ movement," said Scott Moorehead, president and CEO

education matters to us.”
