ANDOVER, Ohio - Two seniors at Pymatuning Valley High School, in Ashtabula County, will share $2,500 in college scholarship money after being named winners in the 2012 Take Action Video Contest sponsored by the Ohio attorney general and Ohio Council on Economic Education.
Kayla Hanneman and Maclane Nugent teamed up to produce an online consumer fraud warning video that beat out more than 240 other entries from students throughout the state of Ohio.
The Take Action Video Contest is held each year and provides a forum for high school students to creatively demonstrate what they have learned about consumer scams and how to protect themselves from becoming a victim.
The video submitted by Hanneman and Nugent is titled I Knew You Were Lion and involves a pun on the words lying and lion.
The winning entry was created through the A-Tech Multi-Media Vocational Program at Pymatuning Valley High School, which is a satellite of the Ashtabula County Technical and Career Campus .
Hanneman and Nugent recently traveled to Columbus with multi-media instructor, Scott Wludyga, to meet with Attorney General Mike DeWine and claim their prize.
