On behalf of Florida Prepaid College Board Executive Director Kevin Thompson, we wanted to let you know about a new scholarship opportunity happening for families throughout Florida this month, in hopes you can share the information with your administrators, teachers, parents and students.

The Florida Prepaid College Foundation is launching a new scholarship program to celebrate 529 College Savings Day, awarding 10 winners a $529 Scholarship deposited into a Florida 529 Savings Plan account. The Florida 529 Savings Plan Scholarship Program is part of the Florida Prepaid College Foundation’s ongoing commitment to broadening awareness of the many budget-friendly, flexible college savings options available through the Florida Prepaid College Board.

Families can enter to win a Florida 529 Savings Plan Scholarship between May 1 and May 29, 2016, at http://www.florida529SavingsPlanScholarship.com/.  May 29 is celebrated nationwide as 529 College Savings Day, a time when families are encouraged to learn more about 529 Savings Plans.
