This Video Contest is in the Bank

To encourage financial responsibility, the American Bankers Association Foundation has a “Lights, Camera, Save!” video contest that calls on students to educate themselves and their peers about saving and using money wisely.

 Contest judges are looking for creative, innovative concepts — your students’ imaginations are the only limit to coming up with unique savings scenarios. Winning videos will be posted on YouTube and viewed across the globe. The contest is free and open to all students age 13-18, with the videos of local winners moving on to the national competition.

 The entry period is Oct. 1-Dec. 1. The top three national winners will receive awards of $1,000, $2,500 or $5,000 to fund their saving goals. Equally rewarding, if one of your students is a top-three national winner, your school will win a scholarship to attend the 2018 JumpStart National Educator Conference. Winners will be announced in March.
