Celebrate 5/29 and You May Win $1,529!
To celebrate College Savings Day (5/29) this year, we're drawing one winner to receive $1,529 for college.

Feeling lucky? Once you enter, ever contribution you make to your NC 529 Account(s) from April 9 - May 29, 2018 is a chance to win.

Contributing to a single Account by automatic draft on the 15th of every month? That's 2 changes to win. Contributing once during the contest period to three Accounts? That's 3 chances.

The more contributions you make (in number, not dollars) of at least the $25 minimum, the greater your chances to win - and the more you'll be putting away for college. It's a win either way!

New this year: If you make a contribution on Tuesday, May 29, 2018, that contribution entitles you to two additional chances to win! It's a Two for Tuesday to celebrate 5/29!
