PCB Now Accepting Submissions for Lights, Camera, Save! Video Contest

Lights, Camera, Save Video Contest

Pine Country Bank is requesting submissions for its Lights, Camera, Save! video contest. The contest, organized by the American Bankers Association Foundation, is a national, bank-driven competition that encourages teens to use video to communicate the value of saving and inspire others to become lifelong savers.

"Lights, Camera, Save! is an opportunity for teens to harness their creativity, learn about using money wisely and communicate those lessons with their peers," said Rob Ronning, President of Pine Country Bank. "We understand the importance of financial education and are thrilled to participate in a contest that helps build a generation of smart money managers."

To participate, students (ages 13-18) must create a 90-second video on saving and using money wisely and submit a link to the video along with a completed entry form to the bank by Dec. 1.

Pine Country Bank will host the first round of judging and will select a winner to represent it on the national level for a prize up to $5,000, plus a scholarship for a teacher at their school to attend the 2017 Jump$tart National Educator Conference. The bank will also award the winner $100 from Pine Country Bank.

Videos will be judged on their quality, message, content and the criteria set forth by the contest's official rules.

This year's contest is generously sponsored by Discover Debit. To learn more about Lights, Camera, Save!, visit
