Attorney General DeWine Announces Winners of High School Consumer Video Contest

(COLUMBUS, Ohio)—Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine last Friday announced the winners of the 2017 Take Action Video Contest, which was open to Ohio high school students.

For the contest, high school students were asked to create a 60-second video about one of the following cybersecurity topics: privacy on your smartphone, social networking scams, or creating strong passwords.

Attorney General DeWine congratulated the following winners:

  • First place: Aujolie Baker from the Arts & College Preparatory Academy will receive a $2,500 college scholarship for her video “Internet Treasure.”

  • Third place: Nicholas Kudlapur from Logan High School will receive a $1,000 scholarship for his video “Password Protection.”
“These students found creative, entertaining ways to share information about important consumer protection topics,” Attorney General DeWine said. “We appreciate their hard work and their contributions to consumer education. We also thank all the students and advisors who participated in this contest.”

In the 2017 Take Action Contest, the Ohio Attorney General’s Office received more than 120 contest entries from nearly 200 students throughout the state.

In addition to recognizing the first-, second-, and third-place winners, Attorney General DeWine also recognized the following finalists of the 2017 Take Action Video Contest:
