South Carolina Treasurer Curtis Loftis announced the launch of the second annual Future Scholar Holler Sweepstakes.

Young Clemson University and University of South Carolina football fans who love to holler for their teams will have a chance to win the ultimate prize pack when their parents enter the social media sweepstakes. Participants may enter for a chance to win the ultimate fan prize pack, including a privately-funded $529 Future Scholar grant.

Now through October 11, parents are invited to enter the sweepstakes by posting a photo of their child (age 12 and under) wearing their favorite Clemson or USC gear for a chance to win four tickets to a Clemson or USC football game, signed memorabilia from the head coaches – and $529 towards a Future Scholar College Savings account.

“We’re excited to partner once again with our friends at Clemson and USC to promote the importance of saving for college with a Future Scholar 529 plan,” said Treasurer Loftis. “Whether they holler for Clemson or Carolina, I hope parents and kids will get excited about college and start saving now for their future education.”

Two winners will be selected on October 12 from a random drawing of submitted photographs – one for Clemson and one for USC. They will receive a privately-funded $529 Future Scholar contribution presented by Treasurer Loftis on-field at the designated game. In addition, winners will receive one of the following prize packs:

Clemson University

  • Four tickets to the Clemson-NC State game on Saturday, October 20 at Clemson Memorial Stadium
  • One item signed by head coach Dabo Swinney
  • A tour of the stadium (approximately three hours before kickoff)

University of South Carolina

  • Four tickets to the USC-Tennessee game on October 27 at Williams-Brice Stadium
  • One item signed by head coach Will Muschamp
  • Four pregame sideline passes

Entrants must be the parent or legal guardian of a current or potential Future Scholar beneficiary and a South Carolina resident. For more on the official rules and a sweepstakes entry form, visit
