MOST 529 State Fair giveaway includes Kindle fire, backpack

SEDALIA, MO (KFVS) -

One lucky Missouri State Fair attendee could win a Kindle Fire HD, a $50 Amazon gift card and a backpack with school supplies from MOST–Missouri’s 529 College Savings Plan, according to State Treasurer Clint Zweifel.

“The cost of higher education can be daunting for families, but with programs like MOST 529 parents can save early and often for their child’s future, whether it’s college or a technical school,” said Treasurer Zweifel, who sponsors MOST 529. “I hope this year’s MOST 529 State Fair giveaway encourages families to look at the options they have for higher education savings here in Missouri. My wife and I have MOST 529 accounts for both of our daughters. I’m proud of this plan and the changes we’ve made to make it work better for Missouri taxpayers.”

According to Zweifel, Missourians can enter to win at the MOST 529 booth in the Agricultural Building from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. each day of the fair. The fair is held annually in Sedalia, Missouri.

Zweifel says MOST 529 accounts can be used toward eligible colleges, vocational schools or technical schools.
