The University of Maine Alumni Association is giving away free tuition for a year, which can be used by the winner or transferred to an undergrad.

Anyone 18 years of age or older can enter to win this nearly $9,000 prize, that will cover 30 credit hours. Keep it for yourself or transfer it to your child, your friend's child, your grandchild, or maybe a stranger in need. It's up to you.

To enter, you just need to get a ticket (or more than one), with a suggested donation of $5 each. The funds will be used to help continue the free tuition contest and to continue the Alumni Association's Student Ambassadors Program. Just fill out a form on the Maine Alumni Association website, and the ticket(s) will be delivered to your door via UPS. This prize could make a huge difference to a family with a college student, and especially right now, with so many people out of work.
