The first-place winner, Christian Thomas from Alexandria, has been named a national finalist by the American Bankers Association Foundation. Lights, Camera, Save! is an annual video contest that encourages teens ages 13 to 18 to produce a short, 30-second film that communicates the importance of sound money management. His video is here: Keep Your Bread Up.

Voting for the Finalists

Thomas is one of eight students selected to compete for several awards, including a $5,000 grand prize. The finalists will face off in a bracket-style tournament hosted on ABA’s Instagram page starting on March 23. Viewers will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite video to make it to the next rounds on March 24 and 25. The winning student will be announced on Friday, March 26.

Thomas’ video highlights the importance of monitoring expenses to reach future financial goals. His dynamic approach uses visual examples to engage a teen audience.

“All of us at Burke & Herbert Bank are thrilled that Christian is being recognized for finding such a creative and effective way to share valuable savings lessons with his peers,” said Executive Vice President Terry Cole. “We hope everyone in Northern Virginia will … support a local student and cast their vote for Christian Thomas.”
