Lights, Camera, Save!

What's the Lights, Camera, Save! contest?

It’s a national video competition sponsored by the American Bankers Association that encourages teens to spread the word about the importance of using money wisely.

  • To enter, create a short (30-second or less), interesting video that speaks to others your age about wise money use.
  • Pick a topic that’s relevant to kids your age like budgeting, saving for college, credit scores – any financial topic you feel speaks to teens.
  • Use the power of video to get your message across in a fun and engaging way.

Then upload your video online and email the link and a completed entry form to us by the deadline.

This contest is all about getting teenagers to really think about their financial future. Since videos must be about saving money or spending money wisely, it gets you to really think about money in a strategic way. Guaranty encourages people of all ages to make their finances a priority, and this contest is just one way we aim to help them do that.
