Community Events and Education

Education and awareness drive our conversations with families about saving for college.  Washington's 529 College Savings Plans (WA529) - the Guaranteed Education Tuition (GET) Program and DreamAhead College Investment Plan - incorporate financial wellness and education in the communication and promotion of the two plans. 

You will find us at a variety of events such as:

  • Employer benefit fairs, work site trainings, and 'Lunch and Learns'.
  • School events, meetings and activities.
  • Conferences, such as Principals and Superintendents, Financial Aid, Human Resources, Financial Planners and others.
  • Family, children and community resource fairs.

Check our calendar below to find out when a WA529 representative will be in your area or email us at WA529Outreach@wsac.wa.gov to request a representative for your event/activity.
