Alexandria, VA — Burke & Herbert Bank’s Lights, Camera, Save! regional winner, Sujay Khona of Fairfax, has been named a national finalist by the American Bankers Association Foundation.
Lights, Camera, Save! is an annual video contest that encourages teen participants to produce a short film that communicates the importance of sound money management.
Khona, a student at Fairfax Academy, is one of five teens selected to compete for several awards, including a $5,000 grand prize and a scholarship for a teacher at their school to attend the 2020 Jump$tart National Educator Conference. This year, 142 banks hosted 163 contests in 46 states as a part of Lights, Camera, Save!

In addition to competing for cash awards, Khona’s video will be entered in the ABA Foundation’s ‘Savers’ Choice’ social media contest. The contest – which runs from February 12 through February 19 on ABA’s Facebook page — will feature the top five Lights, Camera, Save! videos and allow viewers around the world to vote for their favorite entry. The winner of the ‘Savers’ Choice’ will receive a GoPro camera to encourage future filmmaking.
“All of us at Burke & Herbert Bank are thrilled Sujay is being recognized for finding such a creative and effective way to share valuable savings lessons with his peers,” said Executive Vice President Terry Cole. “We hope everyone in the Northern Virginia community will take a few minutes out of their day to support a local student and cast their vote for Sujay and his video “The Savings Genie” as the ‘Savers’ Choice.’”
