One Georgia baby born in 2017 to win a $5,529 college scholarship
If you have had or are expecting a baby in 2017, you could win money for your baby’s college savings through the state’s Path2College 529 Plan’s 2017 Newborn Sweepstakes.
Established seven years ago to help educate new parent’s about Georgia’s 529 college savings plan, the Newborn Sweepstakes provides Georgia families who have a baby this year with an opportunity to enter for a chance to win a $5,529 contribution toward a child’s or grandchild’s college savings. The Path2College 529 Plan will also award $1,529 to the hospital where the Newborn Sweepstakes winner was born.
“When families welcome a new baby, it is often an overwhelming time with new responsibilities and challenges, and college seems like it’s too far away to think about,” said Mitch Seabaugh, executive director of the Path2College 529 Plan. “But, as those of us that have raised children know, the time goes by quickly, and college will be here before they know it. Saving small amounts over time can have a tremendous impact, and that’s why we want to reach out to new parents and encourage them to create a financial plan to help pay for their child’s future education TODAY.”
Parents and grandparents can go online to enter the Newborn Sweepstakes, and Seabaugh said he hopes when they do, they will take some time to learn about the state’s Path2College 529 Plan and its benefits, including state and federal tax advantages.
“We hope people will take a few minutes to open an account to help with the future cost of their loved one’s education related expenses,” said Seabaugh.
