Make Your Mark Contest

Design a bookmark for a chance at a $1,000 scholarship

September is National College Savings Month. At my529, that means it’s time for Utah students to make their mark—and possibly earn a college scholarship in the process.

Students can create an original bookmark for the 2021 my529 Make Your Mark contest for a chance at a $1,000 my529 college savings scholarship account from my529 and Utah System of Higher Education.

Utah students enrolled in kindergarten through 12th grade—or home-schoolers—are eligible to take part in Make Your Mark. The contest runs September 1 through September 30, 2021. Eight total winners will be selected, with two winners chosen within each of four grade categories (K-3, 4-6, 7-8, 9-12). Previous Make Your Mark winners are not eligible.
