The families of six Kentucky students have won $1,500 college savings accounts with the Kentucky Education Savings Plan Trust through the 2014 KESPT www.kysaves.com Dream Out Loud Challenge.

The Challenge invited students in grades K-6 to submit an original poem, drawing, video or essay answering the question, "How will I change the world after college?" Each winner's school will also receive $500.

More than 1,500 students from across Kentucky participated in the Dream Out Loud Challenge for a chance to win a KESPT college savings account. KESPT is Kentucky's official state sponsored 529 college savings plan, which was established in 1988 and is administered by the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority.

The Dream Out Loud contest challenged students to imagine how a college education would help them change the world and also encouraged families to start thinking about saving for college. Children who entered the contest wanted to change the world as doctors, veterinarians, teachers, farmers, architects, engineers and more.

"Dream Out Loud reaches children across the state and gets them excited about their future and how education will play an important role," said David Lawhorn, KESPT program administrator. "It also reminds parents and grandparents that it is never too early to start saving for college."

A panel of local business executives, writers and education professionals served as judges for the Dream Out Loud entries. Winning submissions will be displayed at kysaves.com.

KESPT helps parents, other relatives and friends save for college expenses with tax benefits. A KESPT account can be started with as little as $25 and can be used at any qualified institution in the nation. TIAA-CREF Tuition Financing, Inc., is the plan manager.
