Registration Ends Soon for $45,000 Giveaway for Parents
Save Now, Save Later Awards $1,500 Deposits to College Savings Iowa Accounts for High School Students
Nov. 5, 2015
Iowa parents still have time to register for a chance to boost their high school students' college savings.
The Save Now, Save Later: College Savings Plan Parent Giveaway, from Iowa Student Loan®, offers parents a chance to win one of 30 College Savings Iowa® account deposits, each worth $1,500, and learn more about financial planning for college in the process. This is the second year for the program, and Iowa Student Loan has increased the number of awards this year.
Registration for the program began in August and continues through the end of the day on Nov. 30. The program is open to Iowa residents who have a student in grade nine, 10, 11 or 12 at an Iowa high school. No purchase is necessary, and parents need only complete a custom version of Student Loan Game PlanSM, an online educational tool offered by Iowa Student Loan, before registering for the giveaway. The information they learn, and Iowa Student Loan's other tools and resources, can then be shared with their student.
Iowa Student Loan works directly with College Savings Iowa on the giveaway. College Savings Iowa is the state's direct-sold 529 program, administered by State Treasurer Michael Fitzgerald. Parents who are chosen as winners can have the deposit made to an existing account, or a new account can be set up upon winning the giveaway.
Winners will be selected in December and announced in January 2016.
