What is Lights, Camera, Save?

Lights, Camera, Save! is a teen video contest that encourages teens to educate themselves and their peers about the value of saving and using money wisely. Each fall 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.

Looking to Increase Your Savings Account?

The top three national winners will receive a cash prize of $1,000, $2,500, and $5,000 to fund their savings goal! Additionally, each winner’s school will receive a scholarship for a teacher to attend the Jump$tart National Educator Conference. 

Think You Can Create the Winning Video?

Check out the contest rules and contact a participating bank in your area for a contestant entry form. Don't see a participating bank in your state, contact contest manager Jeni Pastier. Remember the contest closes Dec. 3.
