You know i am going to put this in my blog but i first decided to put it on the discussion forum to see what you all thought about it...I before put on the discussion forum that i felt that teenagers age 12-17, should be allowed to play lottery...I feel strongly about that...Because think about it, just the same way you feel so excited and you say that you want to win the lottery so bad, teenagers feel the same way, except that they can't play...Let's look at Vermont Weekly Grand Game...You are going to tell me that teenagers wouldn't like to win 1,000 a week for 20 years just like grown ups....
And i thought, why don't they create a Weekly grand game, specialized for teenagers, that is pentastate [played in 5 states] or more state that cost 25 cents per ticket only for kids/teenagers...Not only that but for kids/teenagers to be able to play that specialized game for them they must have like a card with a chip that limits how much each teenager plays in 1 day...The limit could be 25 cents per day or 50 cents per day...The teenager/kid goes to lottery terminal or store show the card the guy on the counter scan it with a scan and either gives it a go or not..The teenager if he/she wins he would have to show i.d to prove he/she is a teenager...Can this happen? Look at Virginia Cash5 for 25 cents, it plays twice a day and they have an aggreggate money of 2 million per drawing and i bet that less than 4% of the population of that state plays that game....I know is not from mainly 25 cents...And it doesn't have to be 1,000 a week for 20 years it could be a car that they give for teenagers, though i am more in favor of the Weekly Grand Prize....With that 1,000 a week for 20 years, kids will be able to buy their own house when they grow up in 4 years and afford college....Something else that it could be for teenagers/kids is a scholarship for college...But again i am more in favor of the Weekly Grand game payout for teenagers/kids...
You may say, not enough teenagers/kids but i think there are an equal number of grown up as well as kids...Think about it 2 people unite and usually how many kids do they have? 2 or 3...
Going back to the game, Weekly grand is a Pick4/35 + Pick1/35 and it cost 2 dollars per ticket and is a tri-state game...But if it was an octa-state game the price of each ticket will be reduced to 25 cents and it could even play twice a week but that will be too much for teenagers/kids....Imagine if it was played in 14 states like MegaMillions but only for Kids/teenagers and they play it twice a week...IT COULD WORK...
so i'll like to know what's you all opinion....
with the chip card no kid will be able to cheat, they will not be able to play more than 25 cents daily or 50 cents daily...
How about A lottery for teenagers that gives away a 5 year scholarship to an Ivy League School or to America's Top 50 universities...LOL...
That will surely be wonderful...That way then they can create the game twice a day everyday after it is a octa-state game or a game played in 14 states...
so it will be like the weekly grand except that it last 5 years or 6...awesome idea...

 So if you do the count Weekly grand of 1,000 a week for life will pay 4 kids 5 year scholarship to America's Top 50 universities....So because it is an deca-state game instead of a tri-state the price will cost 25 cents and they will play it TWICE A DAY if in fact they do follow the example of Virginia Cash5...If is more state then even better...so 365 days x 2 times a day equal = 730 x FOUR 5-year scholarship to America's Top 50 universities = 2,920 almost 3,000 teens will get a 5 year scholarship to any of America's Top 50 universities...
And that will be 3,000 teens with 5-year scholarship each year...I wonder if housing is included...California alone could replace the deca-state game....
It will be bigger than American Idol...Ask yourself i don't know much about American Idol but don't all those teens got to pay for their plane ticket which can come out to be what 600 dollars or 700 dollars and this is every year so it is 600 dollars each year multiplied by the housing/hotel, times food and transportation...Now how much will 25 cents a day run = 91 dollars and 25 cents...and i know teens/kids are not going to play everyday...And how many winners will there be in American idol? 1 plus 5 minor ones, while this plan creates 3,000 students-teens EACH DAMN YEAR with 5-year ivy league scholarships or America's top 50 colleges/universities....And this is not the entire country is only 10 states...
in American idol in 3 years there will be 3 winners and 15 minor ones, while with this plan there will be in 3 years, 9,000 teens in ivy Lueague Colleges/Universities....
And if it was a 20-state game instead of a 10-state game there will be 6,000 teens winners in 1 damn year...Of course Theoretically...And after 5 years there will be i think 1,000 teens extra each year besides the 3,000 or 6,000 teens...
i know you are saying it can't be possible but rememeber in Va Cash5 i bet less than 5% of the population plays that game while in this scenario every teen will be playing it and is not just 1 state but 10 of them...

COMMENTS BY Delmarvachick:  Pumpi I don't mean to sound rude, and you are certainly entitled to your own opinion, but to answer your question concerning my opinion...this idea is bad on so many different levels of wrong I don't know where to begin...
As for your other suggestions about lottery scholoarships...schools already do this in the form of scholarships...the government does it to in the form of grants. It costs nothing but a little time and consideration in getting your paperwork in on time and having it filled out correctly.
Have fun

MY RESPONSE:  Well i don't know much about the Hope scholarship or any state scholarhip sponsored by the lottery, but i don't think it will support you to go to an  ivy luegua school, plus it only pays certain things it doesn't pay room and board, while with the plan i am talking it will....Plus, how many kids make it to the ivy lueague with the Hope scholarship...I remember i had the hope for 1  year because i think i had a 3.7 or 3.5 GPA that year but lost it the following year and i think they told me you had to wait 1 year lapse before you could get it again....i just don't remember exactly how it went down...Oh and the hope was paying like half of stuff it was only paying certain things...
With this you have up to 5 years to graduate when the graduating time is 4 years....Plus there are many kids on the streets that will like to do something with their lives and can't do it...
With the HOPE you have to sweat really hard to mantain that 3.0 or 3.5 that is require i don't remember...And i forgot to mention with this plan the state will still have its aggreggate money...
I don't know what people got against LOTTERY BALLS gambling what they should be stopping is drinking and cigarrettes and exceesive speeding, all those things kill you or harm you, LOTTERY BALLS GAMBLING DOESN'T NOT HARM YOU it takes  your dollar away and 50% of it goes for a good cause like paying for the state education and the other 50 cents for for the chance to win a winfall and the majority of people play 2 or 3 dollars quick pick...
ask the question don't you wish your kid was better than you, don't you wish he went to the colleges/universities you couldn't go and become what you couldn't be....
and by the way you wasn't rude...thanks for your opinion...
I read on Fox News that in America there is over i think it was 1 BILLION or 5 BILLION OR  18 BILLION worth of lose change....And i think this is every year, i say put them to good use...

Look i just realize this...USA and the other countries i mentioned....You will need this...I was looking at the history channel about genetic ingeneering, viruses and other stuff our planet faces, like bioterrorism....And i realize that you will need this specially for genetic ingeering, bioterrorism [trying to find the cure to diseases], and microbiology/virology....
You are just not giving scholarships like that, people will have to specialized in certain fields..specially science and technology....

This century is going to be the biological century and there is not enough supply of people studying it in colleges around the world...
i am having second thoughts about this...I feel that you should go to harvard if you are going to study science and technology...if you are going for bussiness don't try, everyone is going for bussiness...Not just in America but worldwide...

Germany this is free but if you could do me a big favor...Employ research and experiments into this:

A HUGE, VAST IMPORTANT DISCOVERY, MORE IMPORTANT THAN MAKING ALL CARS RUN ON WATER:

SOMETHING VERY IMPORTANT THAT NEEDS TO BE DISCOVERED: I CALL IT THE MECANICAL PLANT...HOW GREAT WILL THIS WORLD BE IF YOU CAN INVENT A MECHANICAL DEVICE THAT CONVERTS CO2 INTO OXYGEN OR INTO WATER AND THEN THERE IS ANOTHER MECHANICAL DEVICE THAT SEPARATE THE WATER INTO OXYGEN...THAT WILL BE A GREAT ADVANCEDMENT IN SCIENCE, ONE OF THE GREATEST ADVANCEMENT IN SCIENCE SINCE RELATIVITY...SO THAT'S WHAT WE NEED...i saw one time they invented this machine that could take in CO2 and convert it into Oxygen, they were showing it in the discovery channel...That they were going to put it with balloons and let it hover in the atmosphere but the problem with that machine was that it did it in small amounts...Well if you can create/build one that can do it in big amounts it will be a major step forward for humanity...and if you can take this machine and let it convert whatever gas into oxygen it will be ANOTHER MILESTONE by humanity....Those 2 machines are the key...Those 2 machines are more important and have greater importance than making automobiles run on water....And you heard me right....Remember they are 2 machines, one that can convert CO2 or whatever we breathe out, into OXYGEN and another machine that can take in Whatever gas and convert it into OXYGEN....Both machines in a large scale [like a factory]...But if is in a small scale is fine for is a step forward......The conversion doesn't have to be direct, it can be indirect, multiple times indirect and the last step been oxygen....And want to know something? No present research has gone into them....Because this way you will be able to put this machine on spaceships and let humans been able to breath from them without dying....And i think this research is bigger and more important than Cold Fusion if you could make cold fusion to work this research/experiments/mechanical plant will still be bigger than it...
