“Save Out Loud” Photo and Video Contest
Do you know a student with a savings story to share? The U.S. Department of the Treasury wants to hear about it!
To enter a submission to this challenge, visit the contest Facebook page: www.facebook.com/readysavegrow
Help our nation’s youth get on the path toward saving by entering photo and video essays in the Ready.Save.Grow. “Save Out Loud” Contest celebrating kids’ savings goals.
Students in grades K – 12 have the chance to WIN a virtual visit with Treasurer of the United States Rosie Rios!
WHAT: The Treasury Department is looking for inspiring stories about what students are saving for today. Whether it’s for a baseball glove, a first car or a college education, students of all ages have a reason to save. Students in grades K – 12 are encouraged to share their savings story, including what they’re saving for, what they wish their family would save for, why saving is important to them and more.
Winners will be selected from both the photo and video submissions to win a live conversation with the Treasurer of the United States for their classroom!
