Lights, Camera, Save! Teen Video Contest Under Way at Burke & Herbert Bank

Winner Eligible for a $5,000 Grand Prize

Alexandria, VA – Burke & Herbert Bank is accepting submissions for the "Lights, Camera, Save!" video contest. The contest, organized by the American Bankers Association Foundation, is a national competition that encourages teens to use video to communicate the value of saving money and inspire their peers to become lifelong savers. To participate, students (ages 13-18) must create a video, 90 seconds or less, on saving and using money wisely and submit a link to the video along with a completed entry form to the bank by December 1, 2017.

Burke & Herbert Bank will complete the first round of judging and select a winner to compete on the national level for a prize up to $5,000, plus a scholarship for a teacher at their school to attend the annual Jump$tart National Educator Conference. Burke & Herbert Bank is rewarding the top three local winners with $350, $100, and $50, respectively, as well as awarding a $50 gift card to each of their teachers.

"Lights, Camera, Save! gives Northern Virginia students an opportunity to learn about using money wisely and to communicate those lessons with their peers using a fun and creative approach," said Terry Cole, Executive Vice President at Burke & Herbert Bank. "We believe that a strong financial education is critical to a successful future, so we are thrilled to participate in a program that reinforces that message."

Videos will be judged on their quality, message, content and the criteria set forth by the contest's official rules. Entry forms and more information can be found here. To learn more about Lights, Camera, Save!, visit lightscamerasave.com.
