Video contest

Financial literacy across generations

Are you between the ages of 13 and 19?

Are you interested in winning an iPod Touch, an iPad or even a 13" MacBook Pro?

Do you have access to a video camera?

As part of Financial Literacy Month 2013, the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada (FCAC) is challenging you to submit a thirty-second (30) to two-minute (2) long video with the theme “financial literacy across generations,” explaining how talking with someone about money helped you achieve a financial goal.

For example: “How talking about money with ... (my mother, grandfather, best friend, little sister or teacher, etc.) helped me ... (save for university, budget to watch my savings grow, teach my grandfather how to do his banking online, record my first studio album, etc.)”

If you have received or given financial tips that help reach a goal, this contest is for you!

To participate, you must:

  • be between the ages of 13 and 19 as of November 30, 2013 and enrolled full-time in an educational institution in a Canadian province or territory
  • submit your video by 11:59 p.m. EST on November 30, 2013.

All videos must:

  • be between thirty (30) seconds and two (2) minutes in length and end with “Financial Understanding. It Just Adds Up”
  • contain only original work and cannot contain any commercial messages, endorsements, brands/trademarks or other intellectual property or content which is considered inappropriate, unsuitable or offensive, as determined by FCAC
  • conform with YouTube's and FCAC's upload and technical requirements, website terms of use and other policies.
