“In January we invited teens 13 to 18 to submit 60-second videos around the theme magic of savings," says Zions Bank program organizer Heidi Prokop.
David is a student at Midvale Middle School and Zions gave the school a matching gift of $1,000 as well.
David’s video scored more than 15,000 votes in a public vote on Facebook.
“We just brainstormed some ideas and we go on the internet a lot, so we know that the internet really likes babies and I have a baby brother so that's pretty convenient,” said David.
David says he spent about 8 hours shooting the video and 50 hours editing the footage to create the final product.
So, with $1,000 burning a hole in his pocket, what will David do with the winnings?
“I’m going to either save it or invest it back into video things,” he says.
