Congratulations to Gabriel Antunes on winning the first Film Courage Original Acting Monologue Contest. Gabriel’s performance of the opening monologue from Shakespeare’s Richard III is the one that stood out as our favorite among 52 submissions received. Gabriel is awarded the $100 prize.
Submissions came in from all over the world. Those submissions were narrowed down to 7 finalists (in no particular order) David Jackson (Rocket Man), Evan Dayce (Goodbye Charles), Jonathan Blandino (Game of Thrones), Loki Agnomen (Avengers), Richard Reich (Daredevil), Vanessa Moltzen (The Accused) and Gabriel Antunes.
This certainly was not an easy decision! We love all 7 monologues that were named finalists and many more that didn’t quite make the cut. We want to thank ALL the actors who participated in this contest. We’re proud to share your work on our channel and we encourage you to continue to move forward with your passion.

The American Bankers Association Foundation knows how much teens love to talk about money, or at least their grandiose plans to spend it. Getting students to think critically about their spending habits and understand the importance of saving, however, often poses challenges. That’s why each fall the Foundation holds its annual Lights, Camera, Save! teen video contest. The contest is meant to inspire students to think about what saving means to them while communicating it in a way that speaks to their peers. Students can participate by submitting their short, up to 90 second, savings videos to banks in their area that host a contest. The 2016-2017 contest, open to students between the ages of 13-18, will run from Oct. 1 – Dec. 1. Thanks to this year’s generous sponsor, Discover Debit, the Foundation will award cash prizes of $1,000, $2,500, and $5,000 to three national winners. Additionally, three educator scholarships to the 2017 National Jump$tart Educator Conference will be granted to the top three winning schools. Winners announced March 1, 2017.
