Student video contest winners promote saving
ROCKVILLE, Md. (1/4/10)--MCT FCU recently honored one high school student and two middle school students as winners of its student video contest. The students created videos to promote the importance of saving. Ted Youngmin Sim won the high school category. His video focused on the importance of saving small amounts of money through life. The video showed a young girl earning money by mowing the lawn, raking leaves and selling lemonade. Then, it shows her as a college student who is able to pay her tuition bill because she had saved enough money. Rachel Hodge and Rachel Watkins won the middle school category. They created a video that focuses on the rewards of maintaining good savings habits throughout life. The film begins with two girls playing Monopoly. One girl loses because she spent all of her money. The girls are later shown as adults, with the saver able to afford a vacation during her summer break, while the spender had to stay home. The videos were judged on creativity and originality, overall impact to inspire individuals to save money, and message clarity and relevance, the credit union said. Each winning video received $500, with $250 of the amount going to the winner’s favorite school club or organization. MCT FCU, Rockville, Md., has $414 million in assets.
