Any Age, Any Stage Sweepstakes!

To Celebrate National 5/29 Day in May, we’re commemorating educational milestones — for Any Age, Any Stage.

Entries for the NC 529 Any Age, Any Stage Sweepstakes are closed.

The winner of our NC 529 Any Age, Any Stage Sweepstakes was Timothy J. Maiura from Davidson, North Carolina. Congrats, Timothy!

At NC 529, we believe every milestone is worth celebrating. Whether it’s the tiniest of feet walking across a kindergarten graduation stage, tossing a cap at a high school graduation, or earning that college degree — education is worth celebrating!

The Any Age, Any Stage Sweepstakes is sponsored by College Foundation, Inc. (CFI), a North Carolina non-profit, and the NC 529 Plan, North Carolina’s national education savings plan.
