Port Discovery Children’s Museum and Maryland 529 are helping children envision their future creatively and financially. The museum and college savings nonprofit recently launched its “Start Your Journey Sweepstakes” that will reward one winner $529 toward a new or existing Maryland College Investment Plan Account from Maryland 529, as well as a family membership to the museum.

In a recent press release, Maryland 529 director of marketing Michelle Winner says, “Maryland 529 is committed to help families start their journey toward saving for higher education. We understand that the cost of college these days seems intimidating, but saving for college doesn’t have to be. Through the ‘Start Your Journey’ sweepstakes, we are thrilled that we can help a local family get a jumpstart on their college savings.”


Through Monday, May 31, any child ages 12 and younger can submit photos or drawings depicting where they think their journey will take them in life. All submissions must have parental permission and be submitted by an adult ages 18 or older. A winner will be randomly selected shortly after the deadline.

“At Port Discovery Children’s Museum, we celebrate curiosity, imagination and big dreams—and everything that prepares children for their journey in life,” says Bryn Parchman, president & CEO of Port Discovery Children’s Museum. “We are so proud to partner with Maryland 529 to offer this fun and exciting contest and encourage children to not only dream about their journey in life, but also prepare for it through programs like the Maryland College Investment Plan.”
