(KSL News) -- They're already talking about college for a baby in West Valley City, because she already has a scholarship.

11-week-old Amelia Vai-nuku won a $25,000 college scholarship from Enfamil. Amelia's mother entered the sweepstakes when she was still pregnant. When she got the envelope saying Amelia was a winner, she had doubts.

Pamela Vainuku, Mother: "At first I was like, 'ok, is this for real?' And then I just read it again and it was."

Enfamil will set up the fund and Amelia's parents can add to it if they choose. But Amelia should have enough money in about 18 years to be able to attend just any college she likes.
