This is the fifth year that Braum’s and Dr Pepper have been working together to award the tuition prizes. The prizes can be transferred to a friend or family member to be used for tuition, which is what many of the recipients plan to do since they have children or family currently attending college.

“This contest gives us a chance to really connect with the people in all the communities where we have stores,” said Drew Braum, President and CEO. “When the customers find out that they have won their joy and excitement are just contagious. We love that we not only get to make them a delicious burger or ice cream, but we also get to help them or their loved one during their educational journey.”

The Dr Pepper tuition award can be used to cover college or post-secondary vocational institutional tuition, fees, books, supplies, equipment, related educational expenses or on-campus room and board. The tuition award can also be used to pay off student loans for eligible costs.

In Oklahoma, there were a total of 14 winners, including the grand prize winner and two employee winners. In Texas, there were a total of seven winners. In Missouri, there were a total of two winners; one of them was an employee. In Kansas, there was one winner from Maize.
