Take Action High School Video Contest Launches


Are you an Ohio high school student looking to earn scholarship money for college? Do you enjoy shooting and editing short videos? If so, put your creativity and consumer knowledge to the test for a chance to win up to $2,500 in college scholarships!

The Ohio Attorney General’s Office and the Ohio Council on Economic Education encourage high school students to participate in the Take Action Video Contest. This special partnership seeks to raise awareness about important consumer topics students will encounter.

The contest officially began Sept. 10, 2018 but runs until Dec. 7, 2018. To participate, students (in teams of two or individually) should create a 60-second informational video on one of the following topics: 

  • National Do-Not-Call Registry
  • Dealing with illegal robocalls
  • Using technology to stop unwanted calls

The top three winning individuals or teams of two will be announced in March 2019 and will receive the following prizes:

  • First place: $2,500 scholarship
  • Second place: $1,500 scholarship
  • Third place: $1,000 scholarship
