CHET Dream Big! Competition

DREAM BIG! Hard to believe the first weeks of kindergarten are in the books for Lexi. Time to start thinking ahead. We’ve recreated the classroom at home and Lexi has been working on her @CHET529 Dream Big! Competition submission for a chance to win a 529 college savings account contribution. The CHET Dream Big! Competition is open to students in grades k-8 and high school seniors for a chance to win money for higher education.

I asked Lexi what she will do when she grows up, after college (“When will I go to college, Mom?) to help others in her community (What does community mean?) and after a bit of explaining she knew her plan… teach others to dance. “Dancing makes people happy!” She drew the cutest picture of herself as a dance teacher with her students on our chalkboard. Here’s the scoop on how to enter!
