College Savings Iowa recently celebrated College Savings Month during the month of September. College Savings Month is a nationally recognized celebration of 529 plans around the country, and is used to raise awareness and participation for those interested in saving for college. Here in Iowa, I also announced our next account giveaway to celebrate and we opened entry for a $1,000 College Savings Iowa account. The giveaway can be found at Iowa529contest.com and is open until the end of 2017. Visit our giveaway website and fill out the information required to register to win.

You can get your friends and family involved in college savings by sharing our posts to help them get signed up for the giveaway. Follow and like our social media pages to get more updates and information about the College Savings Iowa 529 plan.
During College Savings Month, I always like to stress the importance of getting the whole family involved in saving for a child’s future education. Everyone knows that parents can save for their child with a College Savings Iowa account, but many don’t know that a grandparent, aunt, uncle or even a family friend can open their own accounts for the same child. With the whole family involved in saving, your children will feel the preparation and love when it’s time for them to head out on their higher-education adventure.
