Win Money for College

To raise awareness about the importance of saving for college, Georgia’s Path2College 529 Plan is holding a statewide coloring sweepstakes. The winner will receive $1,529.


Georgia children in pre-K through fifth grade can color Hootie the Wise Old Owl and complete this sentence: “When I graduate, I’m going to be a ____.” Children have a chance to win $1,529 for their college savings. 


Coloring sheets and official rules can be found at Entries must be submitted by a parent or legal guardian, post-marked by Sept. 30 and received by Oct. 5.
