READING IS AN INVESTMENT -- Students throughout the state of Vermont have been offered a chance to learn about finances through a math program from the State Treasurer's Office. It encourages kindergarten through grade-six students to read a selection of books about finance, including this year's books: The Pickle Patch Bathtub, Isabel's Car Wash, and Stock Market Pie. In addition to receiving free copies of the books, students complete reading logs for the chance to be one of 10 winners of a $250 college savings account. From the 3,936 logs completed and returned this year, Harmony Smith, a fourth-grade student at Lunenburg Elementary School, was one of the 10 winners. When asked if she was thinking about college, Harmony responded with a big smile. Cheryl Miles, the teacher of grades 3 and 4 in Lunenburg, congratulates Harmony and delivers the certificate of recognition.
