The Financial Awareness Video Festival will announce the names of the winners this month.

The New York Fed is currently running two concurrent festivals: one in New York State and northern New Jersey, and one in Puerto Rico. In each region, local college and university students are challenged to create a 30-second video on following subjects;

  • Establish and maintain good credit
  • Improve your credit score
  • Check your credit report
  • Repair Bad Credit

The winner will receive:

  1. $2,500 team prize
  2. Video will air in local movie theaters ($6,000 value)
  3. Professional career advice

Videos submitted for contest will be scored based on the following criteria:

Content Accuracy (20%)

  • Are data or statistics presented accurately?
  • Are the facts presented accurately?
  • Are key terms defined correctly?

Financial Behavior (20%)

  • Will the video motivate responsible financial behavior?

  • Will the video connect to the target audience (17 – 25 year old young adults)?

The winner will be notified during an award ceremony to be held in late January 2013, where all participants who submitted a video will be invited to attend.
