Newborn Sweepstakes Offers Georgia Families Opportunity to Win $5,529 for 2023 Baby’s College Savings

published April 18, 2023

ATLANTA – In an effort to raise awareness about the importance of starting early to save for college and financial planning, the state of Georgia’s Path2College 529 Plan is once again offering a baby born in Georgia this year with the opportunity to win money for college.

One baby born in Georgia this year will be awarded a $5,529 college savings contribution through the Path2College Newborn Sweepstakes. The Path2College 529 Plan will also award $1,529 to the hospital where the Newborn Sweepstakes winner is born.

“Having a newborn brings with it many new responsibilities, which can often be overwhelming for new families. We want to help with one important area—financial planning for education,” said Georgia Student Finance Commission President Lynne Riley. “We have the tools families need to plan for future education-related expenses, and we hope to encourage families to start saving early. Saving regularly over time is the best way to make an impact, and one lucky family will get a jump-start on saving!”

Parents, grandparents and guardians of Georgia babies born in 2023 may go to until April 14, 2024, for official rules, prize details and to enter for a chance to win the 2023 Newborn Sweepstakes (no purchase necessary/void where prohibited). The Newborn Sweepstakes is sponsored by the Path2College 529 Plan.

And while families wait to learn if they won the sweepstakes, the Path2College 529 Plan team encourages families to go ahead and open their new baby’s college savings account and get started now.
