Official Rules for VSAC's '802 Future You' Giveaways

The jobs of the future will require some sort of education past high school, and a 529 college savings plan can make saving for that training easier. To get students (and their parents) thinking ahead, VSAC — sponsor of Vermont's official 529 college savings plan, VT529 — invites Vermont students preK–6th grade to draw a picture of a job they're curious about and enter to win $200 (or more) in a VT529 college savings account. 

The giveaway runs 5 weeks, with 2 ways to win and a total of 9 VT529 college savings plan winners (5-2-9, get it?). The 5-2-9 entry period is from Sept. 12, 2021, to Oct. 8, 2021, with the grand prize chosen by Oct. 15.

TO ENTER: Parents or guardians of VT preK–6th grade students upload a picture the child has drawn about a job they're curious about to social media between Sept. 12 and Oct. 8, 2021 (for Instagram use @802VSAC, for Twitter use @VSAC, and for Facebook use @VermontStudentAssistanceCorporation).

OR send your child's entry with parent/guardian contact details to info@vsac.org or by mail to 802FutureYou Giveaway, VSAC, 10 E. Allen St., Winooski, VT 05404.

Two random winners will be selected from each week’s submitted drawings for a $200 deposit into a VT529 savings plan account. By October 15, we’ll randomly select one lucky grand prize winner of $529 from all the participants.

  1. Vermont families with children in grades prekindergarten through sixth who use #802futureyou and tag VSAC on social media (for Instagram use @802VSAC, for Twitter use @VSAC, and for Facebook use @VermontStudentAssistanceCorporation) Sept.12 through Oct. 8, 2021, will be entered in the following (alternatively, you may send your child's entry with parent/guardian contact details to info@vsac.org or by mail to 802FutureYou Giveaway, VSAC, 10 E.
