Announcing the Winners of our $529 College Savings Award Giveaway

Here at CollegeAdvantage, we recently wrapped up our 529 Day Giveaway. May 29th is officially 529 Day (5/29) and though the 529 industry is excited to celebrate this day every year, most people aren't aware of 529 Day. So, we designed our celebration to draw lots of attention, offering $529 College Savings Awards to 20 lucky people! Since we received more than 25,000 entries, we think we were successful at getting people to take notice of the importance of saving for college! Our giveaway was open to account owners and non-account owners alike.
