We speak from experience when we say that translating the jargon-filled, mind-numbing world of personal finance into readable, engaging material for young people is no simple task. But it looks like H&R Block and DoSomething.org might be on to something.

The two companies have launched a quirky new campaign to get young people motivated to save more and spend less.

At the center of the campaign, which features celebrity PSAs from Far East Movement and comedian Michael Kayne, is a simple, teen-friendly challenge: "The Craziest Thing I Did To Save Money."

Via the site's Facebook app, young people can either upload a photo or text ("WYR" to 38383) some of the craziest things they've done to save. And instead of "liking" or giving a thumbs up to photos, users can "Call BS" or say "I Believe It!" There's also real cash at stake in the form a $4,000 scholarship for the best saving strategy.

Clever.

Submissions are accepted through April 30, but we had a great time picking out our favorites among the dozens that have already been shared.
