Ohio 529 Celebrates 2021 Reds College Savings Grand Slam Winners

The Cincinnati Reds and Ohio’s 529 Plan, CollegeAdvantage, teamed up again in 2021 to help Reds families to hit a grand slam for their higher education goals last summer.

One lucky Reds fan received a grand prize of a $10,000 college savings award to load the bases for their existing CollegeAdvantage Direct 529 account. The winner, Megan Kolb, has divided the college savings award between the Ohio’s 529 Plan accounts of her two children, Reece and Ben.

Megan, her husband, Chris and their children joined Ohio’s 529 Plan and the Reds for an award presentation at the Thursday, September 23 game against the Washington Nationals. The second-place winner, Nikki McConnell, and third-place winner, Randy Hunt, also won tickets to this game against the Nationals.
