Create a Savings Story – Win $1,000

Saving is the start for building wealth so getting kids interested early is key.


America Saves Week – February 27-March 4 –  is an annual celebration to promote savings. This year, you can get some great savings tips and also enter the #ImSavingFor contest.

The winner gets $1,000, and it’s easy to enter. Just share a short video or photo of your savings story at One winner is randomly chosen from entries posted February 1-April 7, 2017.*

To create a short video, feature a savings story by answering at least one of these questions:

• What are you saving for?

• What is your savings story and how can it help others?

• What is your favorite savings tip or trick?

Or create a picture illustrating your savings goal, following these tips:

Keep it simple. Highlight your savings goal, perhaps a new car or home.

Get creative. Use video or photo-editing tools to put yourself in the scene with a lofty goal (think on top of Mount Rushmore or the edge of the Grand Canyon.)

Add the unique. Use an app to add a caption or some character to your submission.

Enter Once, Get a Bonus!
You can only enter the savings contest once. But you can get three extra entries by completing the America Saves pledge and a simple savings plan. After submitting your contest entry, look for an email with these bonus opportunities.

*The contest runs from February 1 – April 7, 2017. Must be 18 to enter. Open to U.S. residents only. America Saves will pick one entry at random and contact the winner by email. Click here for the full official rules.
