Entries sought for U.S. Bank video contest

U.S. Bank is accepting entries for a video contest titled Lights, Camera, Save that will highlight ways teen-agers can save and use money wisely.

“Lights, Camera, Save allows teens to role play and record their thoughts on a 60- to 90-second video about saving and using money wisely,” said Erica Opstad, manager of the office of corporate citizenship and financial education for U.S. Bank. “It’s a fun and educational way to get young people to think about money management and why it’s relevant to their lives and future.”

The video contest is one of several components of the American Banker Association Teach Children to Save program.

The contest is open to students ages 13 to 18. Entry forms and contest details are available through Nov. 30 from the website at www.usbank.com/lightscamerasave.

U.S. Bank will host the first round of judging and submit one winning video to compete on a national level. Students can win up to $3,000 to fund their savings goal as well as $1,500 for their schools.
