Do you live a double life? I do.
By day, I help design and advise savings and financial education programs in schools, nonprofits and cities across the country for CFED. By night, I’m a blogger with a crusade to help kids avoid debt and grow up wealthy.
Okay, so “Daytime” and “Nighttime” Steph aren’t so different. 🙂 Still, they’re two separate aspects of my life that rarely intersect.
Take a Photo of Your Savings for a Chance to Win $500
I’m both CFED employee and a personal finance nut trying to help people save money, so I’m super excited to share this contest with you. This summer, CFED wants to know what Americans are saving for through the American Dream Photo Challenge. And you’ll have the chance to win $500.
Snap a photo of what you’re saving for (like a new car, home, or even college), and include a 100 word description of why you’re saving and why you consider your goal an asset.
First place will receive $500 toward their savings goal and the two runners up will receive $100. The winners will be chosen by a panel of judges based on composition, originality and overall appeal and announced at the conference in September. The top three photos – along with other entries – will be featured on our website, social media sites and will be on display at the conference photo gallery.
Oh, and parents: you can submit entrees on behalf of your kids, if they’re under 13.
You have until August 1st, so start saving and snapping photos. Good luck!
