JACKSON, Miss. (WTOK) - Students 18 and under who attend the Mississippi High School Activities Association state basketball championship games this week are invited to sign up at the door of the Coliseum in Jackson for a chance to win a $500 Mississippi Affordable College Savings (MACS) scholarship.

If your child’s name is drawn to participate, they’ll just need to shoot more free-throws than their competitor to win the scholarship.
