When it comes to saving for college, every little bit helps. Which is why the Annual Parents & Guardians College Planning Conference is proud to have partnered with a multitude of local and regional businesses over the years. Their contributions, in part, go straight into the pockets of deserving college hopefuls in the form of scholarships, which are given out at the conference itself.

  • Student must be a high school student in the 12th grade
