You Only Live Once so Make Your Money Count

Contest Rules

– Record a (90-second or less) video that speaks to others your age about using money wisely.

– Pick a topic that’s relevant to young people, like budgeting, spending, saving for college, buying a home, paying down debt, investment, insurance or saving for retirement – any financial topic you feel speaks to the youth.
