Summer reading program to give away more than $5,000
The Middle Georgia Regional Library System is participating in the Path2College summer reading sweepstakes. Washington Memorial Library kicked off the “Every Hero Has a Story Sweepstakes” Saturday.
The executive director of the college saving plan says Georgia will be divided into five regions to select a winner.
“One child in the state of Georgia is going to win $5,129 come September and the library that they participated in the summer reading program will win $1,529,” says the Executive Director of Path2College, Mitch Seabaugh.
He added the winners in the other four regions will get a consolation prize of $1,529 and their library will get $529.
Path2College has partnered with the Georgia Library System for five years and has given away more than $55,000 for college savings and to support libraries.
