Teens Encouraged to Enter Video Savings Contest

CALLING ALL STUDENTS AGED 13-18: We’re looking for creative, innovative videos that are up to 30 seconds and demonstrate the importance of smart money skills. Show us your best savings tips, why saving money is important, or how you choose to save for college. Your video could earn you some cash!

Bath State Bank has teamed with American Bankers Association for the 2021 Lights, Camera, Save! video contest. We want to find the best ideas from teens between the ages of 13-18 in this video contest. Our local winner will be awarded $100, and will advance to the American Bankers Association Foundation national contest with a chance to win up to $5,000, which is sponsored by VantageScore.

Think you don’t have a shot to win? A few years ago, Bath State Bank had an entry from Franklin County High School that placed 2nd in the nation and won $2,500, plus our local $100 prize! The year prior that, a Union County High School student’s video placed in the top-10 nationally, and was No. 1 in Indiana! You can do it, students!

Make sure your topic is relevant. Any personal finance themed entries will be accepted. Some ideas include:

Saving Tips, Spending Responsibly, Using Credit Wisely, Saving for College, Managing Debt, Protecting Your Identity and Retirement Saving.

Visit Lights, Camera, Save! for complete details. Good luck!
