Congrats to Book Jackets winners from Ohio’s 529 Plan

CollegeAdvantage, Ohio’s 529 college savings plan, is proud to come along aside the Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation to support their Book Jackets initiative, encouraging kindergarteners to eighth-graders to broaden their minds through reading.

As part of the Book Jackets reading incentive program, many prizes were distributed to participating classrooms, including Book Jackets folders, Columbus Blue Jackets mini notebooks, and CBJ sunglasses. Additionally, three classes won a pizza party with Blue Jackets mascot, Stinger. The classrooms were from Norwich, Greensview, and Cranbrook elementary schools. From of all the participating schools, students who read the most minutes across the Book Jackets program celebrated with a pizza party held at Nationwide Arena. They even got to skate the Blue Jacket’s home ice!

CollegeAdvantage also selected five winners to receive $259 college savings awards. The winners are:

  • Luke Shelton of Plain City, OH
  • Megan Friece of Galena, OH
  • Julie Samora of Columbus, OH
  • Kathleen Kenyon of Amanda, OH
  • Amy McComas of London, OH

Winners who already own 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!

Thank you to everyone who participated. Congratulations to all our winners!*
