The libraries where Juniper and McBrayer registered received $1,000 each for their summer reading programs.

The sweepstakes started in May and ran through the end of July, bringing in more than 3,600 entries from participants across the state. Libraries statewide made sweepstakes entry forms available to parents and guardians of children signing up for the 2012 Summer Reading Program.

More than $22,000 in awards has been given to contest winners in the four years of the sweepstakes, Miller said. About $10,000 has been awarded to state libraries.

The Oklahoma 529 College Savings Plan is a state-sponsored, tax-advantaged 529 college savings plan managed by TIAA-CREF Tuition Financing Inc. Introduced in April 2000, the plan has more than $468 million in total assets and more than 47,000 accounts.
