One Ge­or­gia baby born in 2017 to win a $5,529 col­lege schol­ar­ship

Walker County Messenger - - Sports -

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.
