What is the Lights, Camera, Save! Video Contest?
Centric Bank is proud to announce our participation in an exciting program that benefits local students! The Lights, Camera, Save! program from the American Bankers Association Foundation is a video contest that engages teens in educating themselves and their peers about the value of good money habits. We’re looking for creative, innovative concepts—students’ imaginations are the only limit to coming up with unique money smart scenarios!
Students between 13 and 18 years of age (as of February 1, 2021) can send a 30-second self-made video to Centric Bank for a chance to win! Winning videos will be posted on YouTube and viewed by people across Pennsylvania.
The 2018 Centric Bank winner of the Lights, Camera, Save contest went all the way to third place in the national competition! Taylor Brown of Central Dauphin High School in Harrisburg, PA won a total of $1,500, was featured on the podcast, CentsAble Chat, and part of her original song, Cash Flow, has been used as the introduction to CentsAble Chat's Saving Secrets feature.
