A Call For Entries: U.S. Bank Announces The Lights, Camera, Save! Video Contest

Stocks in this article: USB

Tech savvy students have an opportunity to win up to $6,500 to help fund their savings goal, plus $2,250 for their school, by entering the American Bankers Association’s (ABA) Lights, Camera, Save! video contest.

“Lights, Camera, Save! is a fun way for teens to be creative with a 90 second video about saving and using money wisely,” said Erica Opstad, manager of The Office of Corporate Citizenship and Financial Education for U.S. Bank. “Creating a video can be inspiring to the students who produce it and to people who view it. We look forward to seeing what creative and fun videos students will come up with.”

“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 one winning video to compete on the national level. The contest begins November 1, 2013. Contestants need to submit the video’s URL along with a completed entry form to U.S. Bank by November 30, 2013.

Students can view last year’s winners of U.S. Bank’s Lights, Camera, Save! at http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLg02hSjqEIArIuY4WorRR921r9ru3BMr1.

Last year’s winner of U.S. Bank’s Lights, Camera, Save! – Lewie Kloster of Minneapolis – says making a video about saving and using money was rewarding. “Making a film about saving and using money responsibly let me focus on the rewards it brings. Do not over think the purpose behind the idea, make your video fun and relevant to everyday life,” said Kloster.

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 and the ABA 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.

In addition, U.S. Bank rewards customers when they open a Savings Today and Rewards Tomorrow (S.T.A.R.T.) account. Customers receive a $50 Rewards Visa ® Card when their account reaches $1,000 in savings, and then another $50 card if the customer keeps that balance for a year. S.T.A.R.T. is designed to help customers create a savings habit. A full description is available at www.usbank.com/start.
