Lights, Camera, Save! is a teen video contest sponsored by Discover Debit, that encourages teens to educate themselves and their peers about the value of saving and using money wisely. Students enter the contest by submitting videos to local participating banks. These banks then choose a local winning video and submit it for judging at the national level. Union Bank is proud to be a participating bank for this year’s contest.
Lights, Camera, Save! Seeks to use the power of video to inspire and educate young people to use money wisely and become lifelong savers. Entrants will develop a creative way to illustrate one or a combination of three contest themes: (1) the value of saving; (2) the value of saving and using money wisely; and/or (3) the value of saving to pay for college. Then record it. Videos will be judged on the following weighted criteria: (1) 40% for production value, aka presentation quality; (2) 30% for creativity; and (3) 30% for message content, which must be relevant to and supportive of contest theme(s). The winning video from each participating financial institution will be entered in the national contest and judged by a panel selected by the American Bankers Association. The winners will be announced in the Spring of 2017.
Entrants must be legal residents of the United States or the District of Columbia, live in the United States or the District of Columbia, and be 13 – 18 years of age as of October 1, 2016; videos must be in English, no more than 90 seconds in length, and the entrant’s original work; videos are due to the Bank by December 1, 2016
