Five Georgia Children Win College Savings Contribution as Winners of Path2College 529 Plan’s This Is My Life’s Dream Challenge

Aug 20, 2020

Five Georgia children are now one step closer to achieving their dreams as winners of the statewide Path2College 529 Plan’s This Is My Life’s Dream Challenge. The Path2College 529 Plan launched the challenge in May as a way to inspire Georgia children to think positively about their future and dreams.

The winning entries can be found at, and winners included:

  • Zora Ellis from Marietta
  • Winona Johnson from Lithonia
  • Timothy Washington, Jr. from Grayson
  • Juliette Lewis from Decatur
  • Edward P. Berry, III from Palmetto

Each winner will receive $1,529 for his/her college savings. Winners were chosen across the state based on creativity and originality.

“This year has created drastic changes to daily life for families, which can be frustrating and cause children to question their future plans. We wanted to provide a fun way for children to express what they would like their future to be—to get them dreaming and even more importantly creating a plan to achieve those dreams,” said Lynne Riley, president of the Georgia Student Finance Commission which partners with the Office of the State Treasurer to administer the Path2College 529 Plan for the state of Georgia.
