Hopefully you’ve seen our latest television commercial featuring Missouri Lottery’s contribution to the A+ Scholarship Program. This program allows students who graduate from a designated A+ Missouri school to qualify for state-paid assistance for two years of tuition at a public community college or vocational/technical school.
You may have wondered, "Are those actors, or are they real A+ recipients?" It turns out those are real students who have benefited from Missouri’s A+ Scholarship Program. We felt that the most effective way to show the impact of the A+ program was to highlight real students who benefit from it every day. We reviewed more than 400 A+ student applications to narrow it down to the 20 A+ students that were featured in the commercial. The A+ students came from across the state of Missouri to be a part of the production of this commercial.
The Missouri Lottery is proud to have contributed to this worthy program. In fact, because of players like you, we’ve contributed more than $4 billion to Missouri and public education. Every ticket you buy goes toward public education. So Play It Forward with the Missouri Lottery.
