DeWine announces scholarship contest


For Greene County News

COLUMBUS — Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine today announced the start of the seventh annual Take Action Video Contest for Ohio high school students.

To enter this year’s contest, students (grades 9 to 12) must produce and submit a 60-second video on identity theft, cybersecurity, or student loans. The deadline to submit an entry is Dec. 11, 2015.

College scholarships will be awarded to the top three individuals or teams. The first-place winner will receive $2,500, second-place $1,500, and third-place $1,000.

“This contest gives students an opportunity to earn money for college, while building a better understanding of important consumer topics,” Attorney General DeWine said. “I encourage Ohio high school students to learn about consumer protection and submit an informative video.”

Official guidelines and a printable flyer for the 2015 Take Action Contest are available on the Ohio Attorney General’s www.OhioAttorneyGeneral.gov/TakeActionContest]website.
