More than 30,000 Arkansas Academic Challenge Scholarships have been raised in the past seven years. Including last month’s $8.9 million, the lottery has raised more than $700 million for college scholarships since 28th September 2009; since it started selling tickets. “We obviously had a huge month in Powerball sales due to the jackpot,” said Bishop Woosley, the lottery Director.
