2019 Save Now, Save Later Program Winners Announced

Fifty Iowa Parents Awarded $1,000 Deposits to College Savings Iowa Accounts for High School Students

Dec. 11, 2019

Parents across the state of Iowa are getting a $1,000 boost to their student's College Savings Iowa® account, thanks to Iowa Student Loan's Save Now, Save Later: College Savings Plan Parent Giveaway.

Fifty parents have been chosen as winners in the program's sixth year. Each parent will receive the $1,000 deposited directly to the College Savings Iowa account of their registered child. The registration period ran during September and October and was open to Iowa residents who have a student in grades six through 12 at an Iowa school.

Parents who registered also had a chance to experience the Parent Handbook, an online educational module from Iowa Student Loan. The handbook provides financial literacy tips via text and video for parents with students in middle school or high school.

After the registration period, entries were chosen at random from more than 3,500 qualified participants. 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.
