Texas student Nathan Mitchell won the first-place grand prize of $5,000 in ABA’s “Lights, Camera, Save!” video contest, the association announced today. Mitchell’s whiteboard video, “Nathan Mitchell’s Money Management Short,” stresses the importance of putting money toward long-term savings goals rather than short-term splurging. The video was entered in the contest by Extraco Banks’ Waco, Texas, branch.
“In only 57 seconds, Nathan’s video takes you through one’s life journey, exploring the endless possibilities once you start saving,” said Corey Carlisle, ABA Foundation executive director. “Nathan’s video will inspire other kids and teens to make saving a priority.”
The two other grand prize winners were second-place Jackson Harvey’s “A Squirrel’s Guide to Saving” video, entered by Burke & Herbert Bank, Alexandria, Va., and third-place Jared Christensen’s “Savings Sounds Great” video, entered by Zions Bank, Salt Lake City, Utah. The contest was sponsored by Discover Debit. For more information, contact ABA’s Jeni Pastier.
