Two Local Parents Win Money For Their Children’s College Education

Parents of two local students have received a $1,000 deposit to their College Savings Iowa Accounts as winners of the Iowa Student Loan’s Save Now, Save Later: College Savings Plan Parent Giveaway. Julie Borelli of Carroll and Jamie Carlson of Guthrie Center were two of 50 parents announced as winners on Wednesday. The promotion, which was open to parents with students in sixth through 12th grades, exposed registrants to a handbook that provides financial literacy tips. Winners were then drawn at random from nearly 4,000 qualified entries. College Savings Iowa is the state’s direct-sold 529 program, administered by State Treasurer, Michael Fitzgerald.
