The Ohio Attorney General’s ninth-annual Take Action Video Contest gives Ohio high school students the opportunity to learn about cybersecurity and a chance to win up to $2,500 in college scholarships.
To enter the contest, Ohio high school students (grades 9 through 12) must produce and submit a 60-second informational video on one of the following cybersecurity topics:
- Privacy on your smartphone
- Social networking scams
- Creating strong passwords
The top three winning individuals or teams of two students 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.
The deadline to submit a video is Dec. 8, 2017. Winners will be announced in March 2018 during National Consumer Protection Week.
