Congratulations to Andy Ewens, Ph.D., of Cary, North Carolina! Andy is the winner of the “Dream Big 5/29 Day Drawing to Win $5,529” in celebration of National 529 College Savings Plan Day. Andy’s name was selected at random from a long list of entries. The contest, sponsored by College Foundation, Inc. (CFI), was open throughout the month of May with the goal of raising awareness about college savings accounts and providing a deserving family with an extra boost to their own college savings.
North Carolina families can use a little good news right now as the country fights to emerge from the current health and financial crisis. To give students and parents something to cheer about, North Carolina’s National College Savings Program (NC 529 Plan) is giving away $5,529!
The “Dream Big 5/29 Day Drawing to Win $5,529” event was created to celebrate National 529 College Savings Plan Day on 5/29 (May 29).
May is College Education Month, and 5/29 Day is a day to promote saving for college through a state-sponsored 5/29 plan. Almost every state offers it’s own college savings plan, although each has it’s own set of features.
