Lights, Camera, Save! contest

Each year, Security Federal Savings Bank participates in the ABA's Lights, Camera, Save! video contest. 


 What is this contest and what's the goal?

This contest is all about getting teenagers to really think about their financial future. The videos must be about saving money or spending money wisely, so teens are forced to really think about money in a strategic way. Security Federal encourages people of all ages to make their finances a priority, and this contest is just another way we aim to help them do that. 

How do I get involved?

If you're between 13-18, you can create your own original video to submit. Not eligible to enter? You can get involved by sharing this opportunity with teens. Spread the word on our behalf with teenagers who you think might be interested in entering. 

What do I win?

Security Federal gives an award to the top three video submissions. In 2018 we paid out $250 in prizes to our local winners. 
If you are our top placing entrant, you go on to the national round where you can win up to $5,000. Not too bad for a 90-second video!
Also, if you win the national round, a teacher from  your school will earn a $500 scholarship for the Jump$tart educator conference. 

How do I enter?

Simple! Create a video that shows the value of sound money management in a way that will appeal to other teens. Filmmakers between 13-18 years old can script, record, then submit their video to Security Federal between October 1st - December 1st. Make sure to fill out the entry packet and drop it off at any of our branch locations for your submission to be eligible. The video can be up to 90 seconds and must be your own original work. You could win cash prizes, including $5,000 at the national round!

Remember, your video should be entertaining and creative. Most of all, have fun!
