Kentucky's Scholar Houses will get T-shirts through a new campaign involving Kentucky lawmakers.

Scholar Houses give single parents housing, daycare, and tuition while they earn a degree. In the Little Scholars tournament, members of the General Assembly will encourage people in their districts to give college t-shirts to the 500 children of those students, to reinforce the message that college is important.

"We want every child in a scholar house throughout Kentucky to know that eventually, they're going to college, so we want every child to have a college t-shirt," said Rep. Joni Jenkins on Louisville on Wednesday.

There are scholar houses in Lexington, Louisville, Owensboro, and Bowling Green.
