SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

One lucky Savannah College of Art and Design student has won a new set of wheels. Morgan Beem is the winner of the Blick Student Car Sweepstakes. Her school is cashing in as well.

Beem beat out more than 14,000 students from across the country. The contest is Blick's way of supporting art education. Beem says she has been shopping with Blick since her undergraduate studies in San Francisco. Her win also brought SCAD $5,000.

"I had kind of made a deal with myself that until I was out of debt or at least a significant chunk out of debt, I wouldn't accumulate another debt. So, no house payment, no car. I'll do public transportation. So, to win something like this is pretty groundbreaking," said Beem.

The cash award will support SCAD's annual scholarship gala, the university's signature scholarship fundraising event.
