In addition to awarding the 2013 Newborn Sweepstakes prize to one lucky family, Georgia’s Path2College program will also award $1,529 to a partner hospital if the baby selected is born at their hospital. Tanner Medical Center/Carrollton and Tanner Medical Center/Villa Rica are partner hospitals.

“We can’t reach every parent in Georgia alone, and that’s why establishing partnerships across the state is a crucial way for us to reach parents,” said Mitch Seabaugh, director of Georgia’s Path2College 529 Plan. “We hope hospitals across the state will join us in encouraging families to save for college and to promote this sweepstakes where a child and a hospital will both benefit.”
Georgia’s Path2College 529 Plan helps families prepare for the future costs of college tuition and other qualified expenses, such as fees and books. An account can be opened online with as little as $25. Any earnings in the plan are federal and Georgia income tax-deferred.
According to recent Morningstar rankings, Georgia’s Path2College 529 Plan was included among the nation’s lowest cost 529 plans. Path2College was ranked No. 9 with .34 percent expense ratio. The Path2College 529 Plan is managed by TIAA-CREF Tuition Financing Inc., which is part of the TIAA-CREF group of companies.
