Kids can enter to win a chance to be conductor for a day at Port Discovery Children’s Museum as well as funds to start a college investment plan just by submitting photos or drawings of what they want to be when they grow up.
The sweepstakes will provide one winner with $529 from Maryland 529, $50 off a birthday party at Port Discovery and the chance to be a “conductor for a day” at Port Discovery where they can explore the Thomas & Friends™: Explore the Rails! exhibit through May 7, 2017.
The sweepstakes is open to children birth to 12 years old as of April 1, 2017. Creations must be submitted by an adult 18 years of age or older and parental permission is required if the entry is not from the parent. All entries must be received by 11:59 p.m. on April 15, 2017. Details and full contest rules are available on the Port Discovery website.
“Maryland 529 is proud to partner with Port Discovery to help increase awareness among families about the importance of saving for their children’s higher education expenses,” said Lauren Shipley, Maryland 529 Executive Director. “Saving money in a tax-deferred 529 plan, such as the Maryland College Investment Plan or Prepaid College Trust, can cut out of pocket college costs in half compared to taking out a student loan and paying interest, and we’re happy to help a family jump start their college savings through this contest.”
The winner will be randomly selected and formally announced shortly after the sweepstakes closing.
