Path2College sweepstakes end Aug. 15

Path2College sweepstakes end Aug. 15

ATLANTA -- Georgia's Path2College 529 Plan is making it easier for families to pay for college by holding two scholarship giveaways.

The deadline to enter both contests is Thursday, Aug. 15.

Mitch Seabaugh, director of the Path2College 529 Plan, said the two sweepstakes are designed to encourage families to start saving for college while their children are still very young.

"If 10,000 more Georgia families start saving for college, that's 10,000 more children who will have a head start toward achieving their dream when they graduate from high school," he said in a statement.

Seabaugh added that the sweepstakes also benefit young students because they provide money for schools and libraries.

The first contest -- the 10,000 Reasons to Save Sweepstakes -- will gives $10,529 to two lucky winners: a current Path2College account holder and a non-account holder. The two winners' schools will each receive $10,529.

An Overview of Do-It-Yourself Pest Control

An Overview of Do-It-Yourself Pest Control

Your homes are a place of safety and comfort for you, your family, and friends. That is where the baby crawls, the kids play, where meals are prepared, and where you sleep at night. Your home should be just that, YOURS. More often than desired, your homes become a haven to unwanted guests. They could come as cockroaches, ants, bed bugs, fleas, spiders, termites, mice, or even rats. Really, there are more pests with a possibility of invading your homes than can even be imagined. This is why home pest control is a necessity. While many people think that they need to hire an expensive pest control company, the truth is that they can do their own pest control just as effectively and save a lot of money.
