First National Bank of Omaha and Nebraska State Treasurer Don Stenberg have announced the launch of the NEST 529 Back-to-School Photo Drawing, a new scholarship open to families across the U.S.
Beginning today, NEST 529 invites families to capture and submit back-to-school photos of children age 8 or younger by Sept. 30, the date the contest closes. Ten randomly selected winners will be awarded $2,000 each as a NEST 529 contribution. Entries will be accepted by mail and online at www.NEST529.com/scholarships.
Each photo should include only one child, who would be the beneficiary of the NEST 529 account if the photo is one of the 10 winning photos.
“We are happy to share in the back-to-school memories families will cherish for years to come, while helping families plan for the costs of higher education,” said Treasurer Stenberg, NEST 529 trustee.
“At NEST 529, we are constantly brainstorming fun, unique and accessible ways to help our account owners reach their savings goals, and the back-to-school drawing is one example of how we are working toward that mission,” said Deborah Goodkin, managing director, Savings Plans, First National Bank of Omaha.
