Ohio’s 529 Plan Congratulates College Savings Awards Winners

CollegeAdvantage, Ohio’s 529 Plan, wants to let everyone know that saving for college is doable, especially with all the tax advantages found in a 529 college savings plan. Additionally CollegeAdvantage wants parents to know that the earlier you start saving for your child’s future college costs, the more time your 529 account can grow from these benefits and the power of compound interest. In order to get the word out, Ohio’s 529 plan has connected with a variety of organizations around the state to encourage saving for college and offer college savings giveaways with each partner.

Reds Rookies and Reds Heads Kids Clubs

CollegeAdvantage is proud to partner with the Cincinnati Reds to sponsor the Reds Rookies and Reds Heads Kids Clubs! Membership in the Reds Rookies is for children 0-3. The Reds Heads Kids Club is open to children ages 3 to 12. Both Reds Fan Clubs provide an opportunity to connect with the team and make memories that last a lifetime. Families in both clubs can also enter to win a $529 college savings award from CollegeAdvantage, Ohio’s 529 Plan. We’ll be giving away these awards three more times before Oct. 31. See the Kids Club coupon booklet for more information.

The winner from the first drawing is:

  • Tony Kountz of Cincinnati, OH

Jersey Watch

CollegeAdvantage has also partnered Jersey Watch to keep families informed of players’ registration, game schedules and more through local sports organization websites. As part of the partnership, CollegeAdvantage gave away a $529 college savings award to a lucky winner.

The winner from the March 31 drawing is:

  • Carol Alexander of Westerville, OH

University of Cincinnati Alumni Association

In a new partnership, Ohio’s 529 Plan coordinated with the University of Cincinnati Alumni Association to sponsor the University of Cincinnati Alumni Association photo booth at alumni events as well as the UC Alumni Baby Bearcat Program. In conjunction with the photo booth, CollegeAdvantage offered a $529 college savings award. And the winner from photo booth drawing is:

  • Ruby Larson of Omaha, NE

Winners who have already opened CollegeAdvantage Direct 529 Plan accounts will use the awards to boost their ongoing savings. Those winners who are not current account owners will open accounts and use their awards to get a jump start on their college savings!
