The Nevada State Treasurer’s Office announces the unveiling of the Your College Future contest, providing Nevada families with an opportunity to win a $529 college saving account by sharing their college and career goals.

The contest is made possible by in-kind contributions from The SSGA Upromise 529 Plan, a Nevada-sponsored college savings program, and is part of the State Treasurer’s mission to help Nevada citizens plan, save, and pay for post-secondary education.

Nevada sponsors five (5) different 529 plans, also known as Qualified Tuition Programs, which provide Nevadans with a flexible education investment account to save and pay for higher education costs, including tuition, books, fees, and room and board.

Nevada residents can enter for a chance to win $529, directly deposited into a SSGA UPromise College Savings account.

One winner will be selected and announced each week during the 20-week campaign. Nevada residents can enter the contest through social media by visiting Instagram (@NevadaStateTreasurer), Twitter (@NVTreasurer) and Facebook (@NevadaStateTreasurer).
