Video Inspires Teens to Use Money Wisely

[Alexandria, VA] – Grant Parsons, representing Burke & Herbert Bank, won first place in the American Bankers Association Foundation’s Lights, Camera, Save! national video contest with his video, Don’t Burn That Bread.  The announcement was made recently in a video broadcast by the ABA. Grant is a student at West Potomac Academy in Alexandria, Virginia.

Burke & Herbert Bank was one of 350 participating banks in 47 states and Washington, D.C. who hosted local levels of the competition and selected a winner to represent their bank and compete on the national level. As the first-place winner, Grant will receive a cash prize of $5,000 to fund his savings goal.

“We are thrilled for Grant Parsons and proud to be part of this major accomplishment,” said David Boyle, president and CEO, Burke & Herbert Bank. “The best way to connect with young people is through something they can relate to and enjoy. Grant’s creative video offers a timely and memorable message about being careful when spending money. Improving the financial knowledge of the next generation of consumers is a great example of what a community bank is all about.”

Lights, Camera, Save! is a unique competition that encourages youth, aged 13-18, to use video to communicate the value of saving and using money wisely to inspire their peers and others to become lifelong savers.  For more on the contest, visit www.LightsCameraSave.com.
