U.S. Bank Finds Future Hip-Hop Stars in "Lights, Camera, Save" Contest

MINNEAPOLIS, Dec 19, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) --Two future hip-hop stars from San Juan Hills High School in San Juan Capistrano, Calif., are the first-place winners in the U.S. Bank "Lights, Camera, Save" video contest.

Leo Moneymaker, 15, and Alex Colucci, 17, created the "Save Song" about the benefits of saving and the danger of carrying too much debt, which they performed as "Young Muny & Lil Savings." As a result, they won a $1,000 U.S. Savings Bond from U.S. Bank and an entry in the national competition for a $3,000 U.S. Savings Bond from the American Bankers Association Education Foundation.

The second place winner from U.S. Bank was "Money Tree" from Ricardo Zaldivar, 18, in Fort Wayne, Ind., who will receive a $500 U.S. Savings Bond. Third place went to "Nest Egg" submitted by Marion 'Maggie' Gilson, 15, in Boise, Idaho, who will receive a $250 U.S. Savings Bond.
