Let me tell you some fun facts about me. I love a good giveaway. And, I’ve happened to get pretty lucky lately. I’ve cleaned up with a free hotel stay, ballet flats and even a fitness tote. But if a giveaway is for something I truly NEED, then I love it even MORE. 😉 And this is a perfect example. Did you know that 10 Florida families will win 2 FREE years of college from the Florida Prepaid College Foundation? It’s launching its very own Florida Prepaid Scholarship Program!
Running until October 29th (2017), the Florida Prepaid Scholarship contest coincides with National College Savings Month. Think of it as a really fun way to kick off the mid-October launch of Open Enrollment. This is the annual stretch of time when families can purchase Florida Prepaid Plans. Because we don’t advocate ANY student loan debt here at Modern Boca Mom… #noway
After registering to win, you can earn chances at extra entries by answering questions, learning more about saving for college and sharing on social media. There are also chances to win a total of 50 weekly prizes!
We even have an extra special code for you– simply insert it into the scholarship entry form for 10 extra contest entries: BLOG1718
Aside from trying to win the Florida Prepaid Scholarship contest, saving early for college really is important. And it’s feasible…with a little planning and budget consideration of course. Here’s why you should care– 65% of Florida high school graduates who are pursuing post-secondary education begin at an in-state college.
Here’s what the Florida Prepaid Scholarship prize packages include:
- Florida Prepaid’s 2-Year Florida College Plan covers tuition and other specified fees for 60 lower division credit hours at a Florida College. This plan offers a child the opportunity to earn an associate’s degree or trade certification in any number of fields, and is an excellent springboard to a fulfilling career or further education.
- The 2-Year Florida College Plan is one of five available Florida Prepaid Plans, which all include tuition and other specified fees. A family can purchase Plans all at once, over five years or in monthly installments.
Prepaid Plans are available for purchase during Open Enrollment, which begins October 15, 2017 and ends February 28, 2017. The Florida Prepaid Scholarship contest ends on October 29th.
