ELK GROVE, Calif. - An Elk Grove boy with big goals just won $100,000 to make his college dreams a reality. The 3rd grader from Joseph Sims Elementary School and his parents won a nationwide contest.
Duncan Nakamoto, 9, received a giant check Friday for a winning photograph he and his parents submitted to the "Big Dreams Start Small" College Fund Contest. The grand prize, a $100,000, will be deposited into little Duncan's college savings plan.
"It's awesome!!" said Duncan.
Duncan's winning entry is a photograph of him daydreaming.
"Right now, I'm thinking of what job I want to pick," Duncan said.
The caption reads: "Duncan dreams of the possibilities. Astronaut? Doctor? Paleontologist? With big dreams and hard work we believe he can make it a reality."
