Four child-care-age children across Georgia to win college savings contribution
ATLANTA, GA—This summer, four children across the state of Georgia will be one step closer to achieving their goals as they are awarded with a $1,529 college savings contribution. In an effort to raise awareness about the importance of financial planning and saving for college, the Path2College 529 Plan kicked off its fifth annual We Care Child Care Sweepstakes in partnership with the Department of Early Care and Learning (DECAL).
The sweepstakes is open to legal residents living in the state of Georgia who are at least 21 years of age or older and the parent, legal guardian or grandparent of a child born on or after January 1, 2006. Winners will be chosen randomly from four regions—Metro Atlanta, Southeast, North, and South Georgia.
Each winner’s child care program will also be awarded $529.
“We are excited to once again partner with DECAL to help educate families with young children about the state of Georgia’s college savings opportunities. While only four children and their child care programs will win, we will reach thousands of families who will hopefully start saving for their children’s future educational expenses,” said Caylee Noggle, 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.
Sweepstakes details and entry are available online at www.WeCare529.com. The deadline to enter is July 31, 2019. No purchase required. Void where prohibited. Sponsored by the Path2College 529 Plan.
“As a parent of young children, I clearly recognize how important it is to begin planning early for my children’s higher education,” said DECAL Commissioner Amy M. Jacobs. “That is why I appreciate Georgia’s Path2College 529 Plan and this special opportunity for four lucky winners. I encourage families to enter the sweepstakes for ‘seed money’ that will ultimately help their children achieve their academic or career dreams.”
Past winners of the We Care, Child Care sweepstakes include: Giancarlo Gomez of Snellville, Isabella Branson of Kennesaw, Lily Wallace of Gainesville, Adaleigh Carter of Athens, Rebekah Suggs of Ludowici, Emily Haberman of Senoia, Alexander Hawkins of Augusta, Amelia Jane Thomason of Cleveland, Maci Hodo and Kedren Ceesay of Atlanta, Nevaeh White of Griffin, Lucas Chapman of Macon, Jensie Merritt and Carter Faulk from Alma, Liam Cain from Appling, Javon Green from Columbus and Daishaun Burgess from Lithonia.
