IOWA CITY (KWWL) -- It's never too early to start saving for college.

Tuesday baby William, born at the Univeristy of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, was awarded a $1000 college savings Iowa 529 plan.

Each month, a baby is chosen at random from all born in the state to receive the account.  60 Iowa hospitals are participating in the program.  This is the fifth account given out by the treasurer's office so far this year.
