(COLUMBUS, Ohio)—Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine today announced the start of the 2013 Take Action High School Video Contest, which gives Ohio high school students a chance to win up to $2,500 in college scholarships.
“Ohio high school students are very creative, and this contest allows them to showcase their talents while promoting important messages about consumer protection,” Attorney General DeWine said. “We’ve also streamlined the entry process this year to encourage more students to participate.”
To enter the contest, Ohio high school students (grades 9 to 12) must create and upload a 60-second video on one of the following 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 may be featured on the Attorney General's website.
