In case you missed it, GetRichSlowly, a personal finance website that shares many of our core beliefs – namely avoiding debt, responsible saving and spending, and living within your means – is sponsoring a video contest that could put $500 in your wallet.
The contest, which will accept submissions through April 15th, is offering $500 prizes in three separate categories:
1. Personal Finance Tips
We know that you all have incredible tips on how to save money on everyday expenditures, from groceries to the gas bill. Simply sharing your best personal finance tip – like how you successfully manage your budget or how you avoid interest rates on college loans – could put $500 in your pocket.
2. Personal Finance Success Stories
How many of you have a personal finance success story? We’ve heard and been inspired by a number of them, and, for our part, are humbled by the role we’ve played in some of them. But we know there are others out there. Turn your story into a 2-minute video and winning $500 might be your newest success story.
3. Bonus Category: “Website Award”
If you have a personal finance website, you need not even create an additional video. You can send GetRichSlowly a link to your website and the video you’ve hosted there that you would like to share with GetRichSlowly, and still be eligible to win the $500 prize.
If you submit your video before April 1, you officially enter the “Early-Bird Award” challenge, with a chance to win an additional $250.
Good luck, PerkStreeters! We hope one of you hits the jackpot in this competition while representing the responsible lifestyle we love talking about with you every day here on The PerkStreet Blog.
If you were to win $500 – or even $750 – out of the blue, what would you do with it?
