What's the role of the ABA?
ABA serves as the national sponsor of the program and selects the grand-prize winners from the videos that win at the local (bank) level. As the contest sponsor, ABA maintains the official rules, selects the national judging panel and provides a framework and materials to make bank participation easy and turnkey. We also host an informational website for student entrants and fund the national student and school prizes. Visit LightsCameraSave.com
