Ready for Your Close-up, Students? The 4th Annual "Lights, Camera, Save!" Video Contest is Underway

Entry deadline is December 1, 2014

MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 16, 2014-- Students who want a fun way to help fund their savings goals have an opportunity to combine their technical savvy and creativity to win up to $6,500, plus $750 for their school, by entering the American Bankers Association’s (ABA) “Lights, Camera, Save!” video contest.

“U.S. Bank looks forward to this video contest every year because there are so many creative entries,” said Erica Opstad, manager of U.S. Bank’s Office of Corporate Citizenship and Financial Education. “We have received a lot of positive feedback from students, parents and educators. We hear over and over again how much fun the students had writing and producing a 90-second video that combines the message of why it’s important to save money and how to do it.”

“Lights, Camera, Save!” is one of several components of the ABA’s Teach Children to Save program. The video contest encourages teens to use video to communicate the value of saving and inspire others to become smart money managers. To participate in the contest, students ages 13 to 18 can visit a U.S. Bank branch or visit http://www.usbank.com/lightscamerasave for an entry form and contest details. U.S. Bank will host the first round of judging and will submit the top three winning videos to compete on the national level.

Contestants need to submit the video’s URL along with a completed entry form to U.S. Bank now through December 1, 2014.

Students can view last year’s winners of “U.S. Bank’s Lights, Camera, Save!” online at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hY9wdpziXS4&list=PLg02hSjqEIArk47Gnkza_slU3wdSiPvNP.

"Saving and using money wisely is something I practice in my everyday life, so creating a video about it wasn't a big challenge. I was honest, kept it simple, had fun with it, and in the end it was very rewarding,” said Oskar Velazquez De Leon of Mesa, Arizona, last year’s winner of U.S. Bank’s Lights, Camera, Save!

Videos submitted to U.S. Bank's preliminary round will have the chance to win a cash prize up to $1,500. All three winning videos from the preliminary round, will be selected by the U.S. Bank judging panel, and entered into the ABA's nationwide contest for a chance to win the national grand prize of $5,000. In addition to the student prizes, U.S. Bank will give cash prizes to the school of the winning students. People who have questions about the “Lights, Camera, Save!” contest can visit a U.S. Bank branch or email their questions to U.S. Bank at financial.education@usbank.com.
