Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Hundreds of parents took their children to the zoo today, for more than just the animals - to prepare for college. College SAVE, North Dakota's Tax Advantage 529 college savings plan, held a College Save Zoo Day.

Parents learned about the plan and how to sign up to start saving for college, even for children as young as newborns. Parents also registered to win $529 toward a college savings account. One mom has a 2 and a 13 year old, she says it's never too soon to start preparing for college.

Alicia Artley – Moorhead: “It's really important to us, we have been saving our change for their college since we found out we were pregnant with either one of them, so we just do every little bit that we can to add up.”
