The deadline for entries in the 2018 NEST on the Farm Fun Photo Drawing is June 30, Nebraska State Treasurer Don Stenberg reminded Nebraska families. Six winners will each receive a $1,000 NEST 529 College Savings Plan contribution in the drawing, which is open to children age 13 and younger and their families.
Nebraska residents can submit farm- or ranch-themed photos taken of or by children 13 years old or younger to be eligible to win one of the six $1,000 NEST 529 contributions. Entries are accepted by mail and online at NEST529.com/scholarships. Entries also are accepted on the NEST 529 Facebook page in a tab on the right, titled “NEST on the Farm.”
Money for the NEST 529 contributions comes from First National Bank of Omaha, Program Manager of NEST. To enter the NEST on the Farm drawing, the photographer or the subject must be 13 years old or younger as of June 30, 2018. Submissions will be split into two age groups: newborn to 5 years old and 6 to 13 years old. In mid-July, NEST randomly will select one winner from each age group in each of Nebraska’s three congressional districts.
