This year, one lucky Summer Reading Program participant will win more than $5,000 to apply toward their future education, as the Path2College 529 Plan, Georgia’s state-sponsored 529 college savings plan, partners with public libraries across the state to offer the inaugural "Make a Splash — Save for College Sweepstakes."
The Path2College 529 Plan, managed by TIAA-CREF Tuition Financing Inc., will sponsor the sweepstakes, which will launch May 1 and run through July 31. At its conclusion, the grand prize winner will receive $5,529 toward a Path2College 529 Plan account, and the home library of the winner will receive $1,000 to be used for its children’s and teen’s department.
In addition, the Georgia library with the greatest number of entries and the Georgia library system with the greatest percentage of their registered users entered into the sweepstakes will each win $1,529 for their children’s and teen’s materials and programming.
Children can participate in the Summer Reading Program at the Chattooga County Library in Summerville or Trion.
