Bank of Edwardsville
The Bank of Edwardsville is joining the American Bankers Association in sponsoring the association’s Lights, Camera, Save! contest.
The video contest encourages teens ages 13 to 18 to educate themselves and their peers about the value of saving and using money wisely.
“This contest is a great opportunity for local teens to show their creativity while learning about saving and spending money wisely at the same time,” said Erin Janek, the bank’s marketing program coordinator. “In addition, there are great incentives for teens and schools to get involved in the contest.”
Three national winners of the contest will be selected and receive $1,000, $2,500 or $5,000. Meanwhile, the winners’ schools will have a chance to win a scholarship to attend the 2015 Jump$tart National Educators Conference. Winning videos will be posted to YouTube and become part of a national campaign highlighting money management practices relevant to teens.
The entry deadline is Dec. 1.
To enter the contest, teens create a 60- to 90-second video that shows the value of sound financial decisions and submit their video and a completed entry form to Erin Janek, 330 W. Vandalia St., Edwardsville, IL 62025. Videos and entry forms can be emailed to Janek at firstname.lastname@example.org.
