ALBANY, Ga. (WALB) - Did you have or are preparing to have a baby in 2022? Your child could win over $5,000 in college savings.

Georgia’s Path2College 529 Plan wants to encourage financial planning for new parents so the dream of college can become a reality for more Georgia children.

For the 11th year, Path2College is offering its Newborn Sweepstakes to babies born in Georgia. One family with a 2022 newborn will be awarded $5,529 for their college savings. In addition, the hospital where the baby is born will win $1,529.

“Having a newborn brings with it many new responsibilities, which can often be overwhelming for new families. We want to help with one important area — financial planning for education,” said Georgia Student Finance Commission President Lynne Riley. “We have the tools families need to plan for future education-related expenses, and we hope to encourage families to start saving early. Saving regularly over time is the best way to make an impact, and one lucky family will get a jump-start on saving.”

Parents, grandparents and guardians of Georgia babies born in 2022 may go to the Path2College website until April 14, 2023, to enter or get more information on a chance to win the 2022 Newborn Sweepstakes.

Entrants must be legal residents or taxpayers of Georgia and at least 18 years of age to enter.
