Two lucky winners each receive $1,529 toward OCSP accounts, but it will award one Oklahoma State University fan and one University of Oklahoma fan with special VIP football experiences, including game tickets, autographed merchandise and on-field recognition.
"We're pleased to partner with these two outstanding institutions to recognize Oklahoma College Savings Month," said state Treasurer Ken Miller, board chair of the OCSP.
