New York Fed to Co-Sponsor Award Ceremony for Puerto Rico Financial Awareness Video Contest on January 25

January 18, 2019

The Puerto Rico Bankers Association and the Federal Reserve Bank of New York will host an awards ceremony for the 10th annual Puerto Rico Financial Awareness Video Contest in San Juan on Friday, January 25.

The contest seeks to promote knowledge of economics, finance, and business by challenging teams of college and university students in Puerto Rico to produce 30-second videos aimed at educating other young adults on a select topic. This year’s theme is small business, and areas of focus include how to establish a company, how to get credit, how to export, and how to seek assistance following a natural disaster.

The winners will be announced during the ceremony, with members of the top three teams each awarded a cash stipend. The first-place team also will be awarded an expense-paid three-day/two-night trip to New York City. A video selected by public internet voting will also be announced, with the team with the most votes invited to a special luncheon to receive career advice.

This event is open to the press. For more information or to RSVP for this event, please contact Irmaliz RodrĂ­guez at irmaliz.rodriguez@gmail.com or (787) 505-9855.
