Are you an Ohio high school student looking to earn scholarship money for college? Do you enjoy shooting and editing short videos? If so, put your creativity and consumer knowledge to the test for a chance to win up to $2,500 in college scholarships!

The Ohio Attorney General’s Office and the Ohio Council on Economic Education encourage high school students to participate in the tenth-annual Take Action Video Contest. This special partnership seeks to raise awareness about important consumer decisions students will make.
