In March, the Consumer Protection Section recorded a video tip of the day in honor of National Consumer Protection Week. The section also recognized the winners of the 2012 Take Action Contest, a scholarship competition open to all Ohio high school students in grades 9 through 12.
The office received 240 submissions from students of 50 schools in 26 counties. The three winning teams were:
  • First place: Kayla Hanneman and Maclane Nugent, seniors from Pymatuning Valley High School in Ashtabula County. They will split a $2,500 scholarship for their video, “I Knew You Were Lion.”
  • Second place: Eric McGinnis and Jesse Braun, seniors from Normandy High School in Cuyahoga County. They will split a $1,500 scholarship for their video, “Please be Careful.”
  • Third place: Junior David Michael and senior Chance Davis of Dublin Coffman High School in Franklin County. They will split a scholarship of $1,000 for their video, “Stopping Scholarship Scams.”
