Brodie Bosworth, a 17-year-old student at Lancaster High School is the national winner of the American Bankers Association Foundation’s Lights, Camera, Save! teen video contest for his entry, “Money Tree”, sponsored by Park National Bank in Newark, OH.
Lights, Camera, Save! is a national contest that encourages teens ages 13-18 to communicate the value of sound money management in a 30-second or less video. In 2022, 89 banks hosted 100 contests in 39 states and Washington, D.C. as a part of Lights, Camera, Save! Winners from those local competitions qualified for the national contest.
Bosworth’s video—selected after two rounds of judging at the national level including public voting via Instagram— reminds viewers that while ‘money doesn’t grow on trees,’ they can still meet their financial goals if they spend and save wisely. Bosworth advanced to the national competition after winning the local contest at Park National Bank. He took home $5,000 for his first-place finish.
“It is exciting to see Brodie win this national competition and be recognized for his hard work on such a creative video,” Laura Tussing, regional president and chief experience officer, Park National Bank. “Park believes strongly in teaching our youth the value of saving for the future, and the ‘Lights, Camera, Save!’ program has given Brodie and Park a fantastic platform to educate our community.”
