The New York Fed's Savvy Credit Video Festival seeks to engage, educate and empower young adults to be smart users of credit.
The festival challenges college students to produce a 30-second video promoting wise credit use among young adults. The contest provides students the opportunity to learn about the value of financial literacy and good credit through creative means. 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.
Submitted videos were voted on by the public, with finalists judged by a celebrity panel before a live audience at a special event. Winning teams received prizes; first place included a cash award and the opportunity to have their video screened in New York City movies theaters.
We invite you to view the First, Second, Third Place Winners and the newly added Social Media Prize (video with the most public votes).
