It was all part of the 529 IDeal College Savings Plan contest, organized through the State Treasurer’s office and supported by local businesses.
IDeal is Idaho’s College Savings Plan. Idaho residents who opened IDeal accounts by June 15 were automatically entered into a random drawing with the opportunity to win contributions of up to $529.
The contributions were generously donated by Idaho companies Qwest, Debest Inc., Citi and Norco Inc.
About 3,500 Idahoans participated in the contest this year, contributing more than $2 million to help save for their children’s or grandchildren’s college savings.
Eleven lucky people won $529 in additional contributions, including Grant Beebe of Boise who was at the award announcement today.
