Zions Bank is launching the second season of its online reality show "Cheapster," in which college students compete for cash prizes for themselves and their schools.

The bank is accepting video applications from Utah and Idaho students ages 18 to 26 through Sept. 14. To apply or watch webisodes from last season, go to http://www.cheapstertv.com.

Cheapster contestants are judged by the creative extremes to which they will go to solve a series of budgeting challenges presented by Zions and filmed by a video crew. The lowest-scoring participants will be eliminated at the end of each round in order to determine the winner.

Challenges will air online in October and November.

Contest rules, casting call schedules and other information is available at cheapstertv.com.
