Here at North Shore Bank, we are hosting a video contest called Lights, Camera, Save!. The contest, organized by the American Bankers Association Foundation, is a national competition that encourages teens to use video to communicate the value of sound money management and set their peers on a sound financial path.
North Shore Bank will host the first round of judging and select a winner to compete on the national level for one of three cash prizes, including $5,000 for first place, $3,000 for second place and $1,000 for third place. Videos will be judged on their quality, message, content and the criteria set forth by the contest's official rules.

It has been thrilling to see the photos coming in from Europe. In fact, we were able to stream some of the kids in during our virtual assembly yesterday. I'm sure this will prove to be an outstanding educational experience.
Speaking of experiences, please be sure to mark your calendars for Spring Fling. Our parent group and I are working hard to bring this fun event to our kids. We plan to have a volunteer signup sheet in the coming weeks --- stay tuned!
Have an excellent weekend,
