Two Tucson teens have been awarded $1,000 each for college.

Citali Aguilar-Cañamar of Canyon del Oro High School and Caroline Balsino of Mountain View High School were two of 14 Arizona high school students named winners of the Wells Fargo CollegeSTEPS expanded sweepstakes.

The sweepstakes is part of the company’s CollegeSTEPS program, which provides college planning and money management tips for high school and college students and parents, including how to find scholarships, apply for financial aid, make campus visits, save and budget, and manage student loans.

High school students who signed up for the program between April 1 and June 30 were enrolled for the expanded sweepstakes.
