NCUF to host REAL Member Solutions video contest
WASHINGTON (5/27/09)--The National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF) is hosting a REAL Member Solutions video contest to gather testimonials from credit unions and leagues to see the impact REAL Solutions has had on members. The contest will run from June 1 to Nov. 2. The grand prize winner will receive three trips to Washington, D.C.--one each for the winning league, credit union and member. Winners will attend the Wegner Awards Dinner at the Credit Union National Association Governmental Affairs Conference in 2010 as guests of NCUF. Five winning entries also will be featured on the REAL Solutions Impact Center and on YouTube.com and promoted nationally. NCUF will host a conference call June 8 at 3 p.m. EDT to discuss the contest. Entries can be no more than three minutes in length and must reflect the credit union members’ stories, not just highlight the REAL Solutions program, NCUF said. Some suggestions include:
* Foreclosure assistance stories; * Savings programs; * Used car programs that helped a borrower get a loan for a quality used car; * Member savings from payday loan alternative products; * Wire remittance and check cashing programs; and * Taxpayer assistance.
Entries will be judged on members who portray their stories with sincerity, humor or motivation. The story should include quantitative and qualitative information on how the credit union helped the member. There is no limit on the number of submissions. Videos must be received by Nov. 2.
