How Do You #DreamBigStartSmall?

Enter the #DreamBigStartSmall Future Contest!

Mr. Alfond believed that every Maine child should have an opportunity for higher education, and that is how the $500 My Alfond Grant was born. These funds are meant to inspire parents to think about their child’s future education from birth and ensure that Maine’s children’s future is bright. While preparing for their future doesn’t always mean saving, it’s important to remember to #DreamBigStartSmall.
