You must have decided by now what kind of dress you are going to wear this Halloween. During this spooky month, there are good vibes everywhere. We do so much more from finding a perfect costume for the day, decorating our homes with pumpkin carved ideas and weird stuff, eating candies and other pumpkin spiced flavored food, and having fun with friends and family during the very fun October holiday. To make this Halloween more memorable for students, the College Foundation of North Carolina has brought a fantastic program called “NC 529 Halloween Costume Contest 2021”. You can participate in this program by posting you’re of your little ghosts, astronauts, and lions on Facebook or Instagram, tagging NC 529, and using the hashtag #NC529Halloween.
At the end of the application deadline, three winners will be selected and provided with $100. The amount will directly be deposited to the winners’ NC529 account. Taking part in this program is very easy. What you need to do is to dress your little one up in their Halloween costume and take a cute picture, tag @NC529 and use #NC529Halloween when you post on Facebook or Instagram. You should have an existing or created NC 529 Account with a designated beneficiary for whom the Prize will be utilized for higher education.
