Take Action Video Contest Kicks Off

The Ohio Attorney General’s Office is calling on Ohio high school students to participate in the sixth annual Take Action Video Contest and produce a 60-second video warning fellow Ohioans about scams, cybersecurity threats, and identity theft.

The contest officially begins Monday, Sept. 15, 2014. Ohio high school students (individuals or in teams) must create a 60-second video on one of the following topics:
  • Identity theft
  • Cybersecurity privacy and safety
  • Online marketplace scams
  • Business or imposter scams
The deadline to submit a video is Friday, Dec.12, 2014. Winners will be announced in March 2015.
The top three winning individuals or teams will receive college scholarships of $2,500, $1,500, and $1,000, respectively. Additionally, the winning videos will be featured on the Ohio Attorney General’s website.
The 2014 Take Action Video Contest is sponsored by the Ohio Attorney General’s Office and the Ohio Council on Economic Education. This special partnership encourages Ohio high school students to build awareness of the importance of being a smart consumer.
Ohio high school students submitted more than 240 video entries in last year’s Take Action Contest. The winners were Yijia Liang and Eric Dong from Upper Arlington High School; Kelly Murphy and Nick Taylor from Dublin Coffman High School; and Mitch Fogle from Upper Sandusky High School.
