2016 Take Action Contest

September 12, 2016

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine today announced the start of the eighth annual Take Action Video Contest, which gives Ohio high school students a chance to win up to $2,500 in college scholarships.

To enter the contest, Ohio high school students (grades 9 to 12) must produce and submit a 60-second video warning Ohioans about one of the following topics:

  • Imposter scams
  • Cybersecurity privacy and safety
  • Importance of checking your credit report

The deadline to submit a video is Dec. 9, 2016. Winners will be announced in March 2017 during National Consumer Protection Week.

The top three winning individuals or teams will receive college scholarships of $2,500, $1,500, and $1,000, respectively, and their videos may be featured on the Attorney General’s website.

Official guidelines and promotional materials are available at www.OhioAttorneyGeneral.gov/TakeActionContest. Teachers and administrators are encouraged to print out and display a copy of the 2016 Take Action Contest flier in their schools.

Last year’s winning videos also are available on the Ohio Attorney General’s website.
