Georgia Students’ Dreams Could Earn To Go To College
Georgia students have the opportunity to turn their dreams into college savings through this year’s My Dream of Life Contest, sponsored by Georgia’s Path2College 529 plan. Returning to its second year, the My Life’s Dream Challenge program encourages students across the state to create original work detailing their life dreams for the chance to win $ 1,529 in financial aid for higher education.
At least one winner will be selected from each region of Atlanta, Southeastern Georgia, North and South Georgia, and up to eight statewide winners. Winners will be selected based on creativity and originality.
The Georgia Student Finance Commission is working around the clock to provide the next generation of leaders with the resources they need to reach the stars and access the opportunities offered through higher education, Lynne Riley, President of the Georgia Student Finance Commission, said in a press release.
Our agency is proud to partner with the Treasurer’s Office to improve financial literacy and help Georgia families prepare for their post-high school education. I encourage Georgia students to unleash their creativity by participating in the My Life’s Dream competition.
Entries can include videos, images, drawings, poems, or essays. Winners must be at least 18 years old, be a legal resident of Georgia, and have an application submitted by a parent, grandparent or legal guardian. Applications are limited to one original work per family.
