In recognition of National 529 College Savings Day, the Oregon College Savings Plan will award five prizes of $529.

Each of the awards come in the form of an Oregon College Savings Plan account. Eligible entrants have until 5 p.m. on Tuesday, May 29 to complete entry forms at The 529 Day promotion is open to Oregon families who do not currently have an Oregon College Savings Plan account and also to existing plan account owners.

National 529 Day serves to raise awareness to the benefits of investing in a 529 college savings plan, said Michael Parker, executive director of the Oregon College Savings Plan. With the rising costs of a college education, he said it’s important that families begin the process of saving as soon as possible.

Launched in January 2001, the Oregon College Savings Plan has grown to more than $1.7 billion in assets as of March 31, 2018. For more information, visit or call 1-866-772-8464.
