Tennessee Lottery Sets Another Record

Tennessee lottery officials say they’ve set another record with more than $323 million raised this year for state education programs. 

That’s a 10.2% increase over last year's then-record of $293.4 million. This year marks the eighth consecutive record-setting year. According to data from the Tennessee Student Assistance Corporation more than 600,000 scholarships have been awarded to in-state education institutions since the lottery's inception in 2004.
