Public voting for the New York Fed’s annual Savvy Credit Video Festival in now open. The Festival, co-sponsored by the New York Bankers Association (NYBA), seeks to engage, educate and empower young adults by challenging college students to produce a 30-second video about using credit wisely.
The public can view and vote on 20 videos produced by 11 different local colleges and universities by visiting the NYBA website.
A celebrity panel will judge the finalists during an event held at the New York Fed on February 5. The winning team will receive a number of prizes including a cash award and will have their video screened in New York City movie theaters.
The public is encouraged to continue the conversation on Twitter using #FedVideoVote.
About the New York Fed’s Savvy Credit Video Competition
The Bank's Regional and Community Outreach team created the Savvy Credit Video Festival as a way to advance financial literacy among young adults. The contest challenges college students to produce a 30-second video promoting wise credit use. Each year, the New York Fed sponsors two festivals: one in Puerto Rico and another for the tri-state region of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.
