Coloring their way to college

TCC 'Color for College' interview

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – Crayons could help your child build their foundation toward a college education. How? The Cellular Connection is holding a Color for College contest where kids 13 years old and younger can win a $1,500 scholarship.

TCC regional manager Dan Davidson was a guest on News 18 This Morning Monday. “Our Color for College initiative runs until the end of the month. Children under the age of 13 can come into any of our locations, pick up one of these [an entry form], color it, fill in information on the back and turn it in. Then on Sept. 5, all of our stores will do a drawing and a $1,500 scholarship will be given away,” Davidson explained.

This comes on the heels of TCC giving away 100,000 backpacks for its Culture of Good movement.

The Color for College contest runs until Aug. 31. You can take your child to The Cellular Connection at 348 E. State St. in West Lafayette to pickup and return forms.
