DeWine announces 2015 Take Action scholarship contest


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

To enter this year’s contest, students in 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

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,” 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 []website.
