MUHLENBERG COUNTY, KY (10/5/12) – Today’s kids know everything about everything, but how much do they know about the using money wisely? First Kentucky’s participation in the “Lights, Camera, Save!” contest seeks to answer that very question.
“’Lights, Camera, Save!’ will allow teens to role play and record their thoughts about saving and using money wisely,” explained Laura Stinson, Director of Marketing, “It’s a way to get kids thinking about money management and its relevance to their lives and future.”
The video contest encourages youth to use video to communicate the value of saving and inspire others to become smart money managers.
"The contest is meant to be fun and exciting but when all is said and done, we hope teens will take action and start young to save more,’” Stinson added.
To participate, students ages 13-18 can stop by First Kentucky for an entry form and contest details from Nov. 1 through Nov. 30. First Kentucky will host the first round of judging and will submit one winning video to compete on the national level. Students can win up to $3,000 to fund their savings goal, plus $1,500 for their school.
“Lights, Camera, Save!” is a part of the Teach Children to Save campaign, a national movement of volunteer bankers who guide young people towards lifelong savings habits. Since 1997, the campaign has reached some 5 million young people with the help of more than 100,000 banker volunteers.
