Two scholarship opportunities for Utah students
As summer continues and you begin to think about returning to school and saving for higher education, keep in mind two my529 college savings scholarship opportunities.
Book Your Summer
The Book Your Summer reading award is a partnership between my529 and the Utah State Library to champion summer reading while promoting college savings. Parents can enroll their children in their local library’s summer reading program for a chance to win a $1,000 my529 college savings scholarship account. Four children up to age 18 from four state regions will be awarded the scholarship accounts, while their respective libraries will receive $500 for books and media.
Book Your Summer is part of a campaign to raise awareness among Utah families about investing for postsecondary education with my529. Book Your Summer runs May 15 through August 15. Find the official rules at bookyoursummer.com.
Make Your Mark
During September’s National College Savings Month, my529 and the Utah System of Higher Education sponsor the Make Your Mark bookmark contest. Make Your Mark offers students a chance to win a $1,000 my529 college savings scholarship account.
Students in kindergarten through 12th grade can enter an original bookmark design within their appropriate grade category (K-3, 4-6, 7-8, 9-12). Eight Utah students will each receive a $1,000 college savings scholarship account for their winning bookmarks.
Throughout College Savings Month, my529 puts particular emphasis on encouraging Utah families to invest in their children’s education. Check my529.org for details on the contest.
