In the spirit of the season, the TNStars College Savings 529 Program is again giving one Tennessee child a $5,000 scholarship awarded into a TNStars account.

For the second year in a row, Tennessee residents age 21 and older can enter to win at TNStars.com/Scholarship now through Dec. 31 on behalf of a child age 10 or younger. One entry is good for the entire contest period. The $5,000 prize can be used by the winning beneficiary to cover future post-secondary education expenses ranging from tuition and housing to books, computers and more.

“We are very proud that Tennessee’s own college savings program has already helped more than 19,000 children prepare for the future costs of higher education,” said State Treasurer David H.
Lillard, Jr. "The cost of higher education is more than just tuition, and Tennessee is fortunate to have TNStars helping make saving and investing for college easy for all families.”  

TNStars is designed to give Tennessee families high-quality investment options at a low cost to help them put aside money for higher education expenses. Families can invest directly with the program and money can be withdrawn tax-free from a TNStars account as long as it is used for qualified post-secondary education expenses.
