With just over two weeks to go until the first round of the 2015 March Madness basketball tournament, you’ve sure got a lot on your plate. Have you printed brackets for your office? Booked your tickets to Vegas? Okay, we understand not everyone gets that excited about basketball. Heck, you might not even know what March Madness is. Either way, Savingforcollege.com wants to give you a chance to win two Fitbits and a $250 cash scholarship!

To enter, just post a photo of family member, friends, or yourself wearing your favorite college basketball team gear to the Savingforcollege.com Facebook page starting on March 17th. You know you’ve been dying to find a reason to put your six-month old in that Connecticut Huskies cheerleader outfit your college roommate sent for Christmas. Or maybe you’re planning on making it to a game or two. How about a selfie of you and your buddies with painted faces? Your options are limitless!

If you’re the lucky winner, it may be tempting to spend your prize on more adorable baby outfits, but remember that cute clothes won’t get your kids to college. How about enrolling in a tax-advantaged 529 college savings plan (or making a contribution if you already have a plan)? If you need help getting started, check out the College Savings Planner. You’ll be able to design a customized college savings strategy designed to meet the unique needs of your family.
