To enter, simply create a video that is 2-4 minutes long and address the question: What have you done to save for your future? Just a few examples can include describing a part-time job, creating an in-depth budgeting plan, cutting unneeded expenses, or changing daily spending habits that make a big difference down the line.

When attending college, students can face seemingly insurmountable fees and expenses, which can make it even more difficult to save money for their future. Due to this struggle, we are always interested to hear from current students to see how they have demonstrated a keen financial sense and thrifty mentality.
