Alexandria, VA — Burke & Herbert Bank's Lights, Camera, Save! local winner, Dylan J. Fox, has been named a national finalist in the American Bankers Association Foundation's "Lights, Camera, Save!" video competition. Lights, Camera, Save! is an annual video competition that encourages teen participants to produce a short video that communicates the importance of sound money management.
Fox - a student at Fairfax County's Lake Braddock Secondary School - is one of five students from across the country selected to compete for several awards, including a $5,000 grand prize and a scholarship for a teacher at their school to attend the 2017 Jump$tart National Educator Conference. This year, 125 banks hosted contests in 48 states and Washington, D.C. The winners of the national competition will be announced in March, 2017.
In addition to competing for cash awards, Fox's video will be entered in the ABA Foundation's "Savers’ Choice" social media contest. The contest – which runs from February 1 through February 8 on ABA's Facebook Page - will feature the top five Lights, Camera, Save! videos and allow viewers around the world to vote for their favorite entry. The winner of the "Savers' Choice" vote will receive a GoPro camera to encourage future filmmaking.
"All of us at Burke & Herbert Bank are thrilled Dylan is being recognized for finding such a creative and effective way to share valuable savings lessons with his peers,” remarked Terry Cole, Executive Vice President. "We hope everyone in our surrounding communities will take a few minutes out of their day to support a local student and cast their vote for Dylan's "$ave Your Future" video as the 'Savers’ Choice.'
