High School Student Contest Launches Sept. 17

Ohio high school students in grades 9 through 12 can enter to win up to $2,500 in college scholarships by participating in the fourth annual Take Action Video Contest, which will accept submissions from Sept. 17, 2012, to Dec. 14, 2012.
The contest encourages students to learn about consumer issues and use their creativity to produce a 60-second video educating Ohioans on one of the following topics:
  • Ways to avoid a scam
  • Prizes/sweepstakes scams
  • Online marketplace scams
  • Grandparent scams
  • Scholarship/grant scams
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.
In last year’s Take Action Contest, Ohio high school students submitted more than 275 video entries. The winners were Alexander Martin ofOhio Virtual Academy; Chaz Bottoms of Benedictine High School; and Eunice Park of Perrysburg High School.
