Costumed kids take advantage of college savings program

Posted: Updated:
JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Some children in the metro area aren't just thinking about candy for Halloween. They are planning for their future.     

Although they were dressed in full costume, it wasn't trick-or-treat. It was deposit and sign.

These youngsters are taking advantage of the Mississippi College Savings Account Initiative.     Whatever children deposited today, the program matched that amount, up to 50 bucks.     

The two-year pilot project will help more than 500 families prepare to fund college tuition costs.
