Financial Plus Federal Credit Union has turned to area high school students to pick up their cameras and shoot fun, cool videos that talk about money.
The student or team selected as best video of the Flint, Mich.-based credit union's Fine Tune$ competition will walk away with bragging rights and $250. Runner-ups will also be recognized and can win $75. Videos produced should be up to two minutes and address topics ranging from "what money means to me and how I use it" or "what is credit and why should I care," to "it's all about the bling-if you can afford it or saving for a car/college/vacation and the steps to do it." In addition, each video submission must showcase how a credit union and Fine Tune$ can be used to help benefit young consumers.
The competition is designed to draw attention to the over $338 million credit union's teen program which includes a savings account, free checking, Visa debit card and an optional low APR credit card.
