To celebrate September as College Savings Month, Hoosiers can enter a sweepstakes worth $10,000 to help with higher education costs.

Contestants must be at least 18 years old and enter online by midnight on Sept. 30. A winner will receive a $10,000 contribution to a CollegeChoice 529 Savings Plan account to use for qualified expenses like tuition, books and computers.

With CollegeChoice 529 plans, students and families can save money for post-secondary or higher education. Accounts can be opened for as little as $10, and family and friends can contribute to the account on behalf of the student. Funds can be used at any eligible university or apprenticeship program, both in and out of state. Account growth is tax-deferred and tax-free, as long as the funds are used for education expenses.
