15 Opportunities for Libraries to
Win $500 for Future Programs!

The Oregon College Savings Plan, the Oregon State Library and the Oregon Library Association are pleased to announce the 2011 Summer Reading Program partnership, "Destination College Savings." Destination College Savings is designed to encourage Oregon residents to participate in your summer reading program while helping families learn more about saving for college.

Simply encourage parents (or guardians and grandparents) to enter Destination College Savings when their child signs up for summer reading at your library (or any other way that works best for your library). They can enter by completing a short entry form and dropping the postage-paid card in the mail. Please note that entry cards will not be available at Multnomah County Library so their patrons will need to enter online at OregonCollegeSavings.com. Fifteen summer reading participants statewide will be randomly selected as winners of a $1,000 Oregon College Savings Plan account, (three per congressional district). Plus, each winner's library will receive a cash prize of $500 to use toward future programs. The contest begins June 1, 2011 and ends September 2, 2011.

A starter kit of materials is on its way to your library (based on quantities your library ordered in November). More supplies can be ordered anytime for free at oregon.college.savings at admailinc.com.


  *   Entry Card. Encourage parents to fill out the postage-paid entry card at your library and drop it in the mail. One entry per child. Each child must be 18 or younger to participate.
  *   Oregon College Savings Plan Brochure. Help families learn more about saving for college by distributing an Oregon College Savings Plan Brochure along with the Entry Card.
  *   Bookmark. Give these out to the kids as a fun way to remind them about summer reading and college savings.
  *   Table Tent. Place these on library tables or on your counter.
  *   Posters. Hang posters where they will help you promote summer reading and the contest.
