This is the first of several weekly reminders that Get Rich Slowly is currently running a video contest in which you could win $500 — or a signed copy of Your Money: The Missing Manual. All you have to do is make a 2-minute video featuring either a personal-finance tip or your own financial success story and submit it by April 15th.

Winners in each category will win $500. Ten runners-up will each receive a copy of my book. (And if you have a website, you’re also eligible for a $500 prize in the bonus website category.)

Entries are beginning to trickle in — and I’m eager to see many more in the future. I love seeing what you folks come up with. For example, Jamison from Tech Tips for Parents just submitted his success story. I think it’s pretty good:

You can view all of the contest entries here. (There are just a few so far, so each entrant’s odds of winning are pretty good right now!)

For more details, see the announcement post, the contest page, or the official contest rules. And if you have questions, drop me a line!
