The Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis is sponsoring its fourth national economic education YouTube video contest.
The Bank is seeking creative videos that will help it teach an important personal finance lesson to high school audiences.
The theme for the contest is managing student loans. To compete, entrants must be 13 years of age or older, a U. S. resident, and eligible to receive a U.S. Savings Bond.
Submissions can be from an individual or a team. Prizes will be awarded to the top four videos: a $1,000 U.S. I-Series Savings Bond for first place, a $750 U.S. I-Series Savings Bond for second-place, a $500 U.S. I-Series Savings Bond for third place, and a $250 I-Series Savings Bond for the "peoples’ choice" award. In addition, these videos will be added to the St. Louis Fed’s economic education and financial literacy programs and will be used by teachers across the country to teach personal finance to students. The contest runs until April 13, 2012.
