The College Savings Foundation (CSF) is continuing their contest this month for families who use 529 plans. To enter, simply share a video that tells your college savings story on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube or Instagram using hashtag #CSF529story. One lucky winner will be selected at random to receive a $500 GiftofCollege card to be applied to a 529 account.

Theme:

Who's your 529 Valentine? Tell us more about who you are saving for … what they want to be when they grow up, and why you are saving for them.

To be eligible for the drawing, entries must be received by February 29th, 2016 EST.

To enter and read the official rules, visit https://new.collegesavingsfoundation.org/csf-video-contest/.

Not saving with a 529 plan yet?

Get started today! 529 college savings plans offer tax-free earnings and tax-free withdrawals when the funds are used to pay for qualified higher education expenses, which now include laptops. What’s more, your state may offer additional benefits such as a tax deduction or credit for contributions, or matching grants.

Not sure what your child will end up doing after high school? 529 plans can be used to pay tuition at public and private four-year schools, community college, vocational schools, international schools and even some gap year programs. Find out if a school is eligible here.

While your home state may offer perks for residents who invest with their 529 plan, you have the option of enrolling in almost any state’s plan. Compare plan details here.
