COLUMBIA - Calling all parents of young children: the Future Scholar 529 Savings plan is giving you the opportunity to show off your adorable little ones through a new Facebook sweepstakes.
State Treasurer Curtis Loftis has announced the privately funded Future Scholar Diaper Dash Sweepstakes, which will award two lucky winners, ages 4 and under, the opportunity to win a $529 contribution to a Future Scholar 529 savings account.
Through Feb. 6, parents are invited to enter the sweepstakes by posting a public photo of their child to their personal Facebook page with the hashtag “#DiaperDash” (bonus points if it’s a video or picture of them crawling). Two eligible winners will be selected at random.
“While crawling and walking are important milestones for every child, opening up a 529 college savings account is something that should be recognized as equally important,” Loftis said.
The first randomly selected winner will be announced via Facebook on Jan. 30, followed by the second winner who will be announced Feb. 7.
All entrants must be the parent or guardian of a current or potential Future Scholar beneficiary, who must be a legal resident of South Carolina, age four or younger at the time of the sweepstakes (Jan. 16-Feb. 6, 2018).
There is a limit of one entry per participant, and participants must “like” the Office of South Carolina State Treasurer’s official Facebook page in order to qualify.
