Teens teaching teens to save

Are you looking for a fun way to teach your teenage students about saving? How about letting other teens do the job? Check out this year’s Lights, Camera, Save! Video Contest finalists for a fun way to get your teens talking about the importance of saving.

Each year, Discover Debit sponsors the Lights, Camera, Save! Video Contest to encourage teens to make short videos to help educate themselves and their peers about the advantages of saving money. Videos, like the ones below, are produced from teens all over the states. The videos may be short and sometimes funny, but they can truly get the conversation started with your students.

Currently, voting is open for this year’s Savers’ Choice award. Take a moment out of your day to let these teens teach your students! To view the top five videos and vote for your favorite, you must visit the American Bankers Association’s (ABA) official Facebook page, like the page and submit your vote.

Not only will your teenage students learn about saving from students their own age, they will also help the winner’s build up their savings account. The top three winners in the nation are awarded a prize of $1,000, $2,500 and $5,000 to help towards their savings goal.

To watch more Lights, Camera, Save! videos and get the conversation started with your students, visit the ABA’s YouTube channel.
