Ohio high school students in grades 9 through 12 can enter to win up to $2,500 in college scholarships by participating in the Attorney General’s fifth annual Take Action Video Contest.
The contest encourages students to use their creative skills to create a 60-second video that educates viewers on one of these topics:
Online marketplace scams
Business or government imposter scams
The deadline to submit a video is Dec. 13, 2013. Winners will be announced in March 2014.
The top three winning individuals or teams will receive college scholarships of $2,500, $1,500, and $1,000, respectively, and will have an opportunity to be featured on the Attorney General’s website.
The contest is sponsored by the Ohio Attorney General’s Office and the Ohio Council on Economic Education.
Ohio high school students submitted more than 240 video entries in last year’s Take Action Contest. The winners were Kayla Hanneman and Maclane Nugent from Pymatuning Valley High School, Andover; Jesse Braun and Eric McGinnis from Normandy High School, Parma; and Chance Davis and David Michael from Dublin Coffman High School, Dublin.
