3 CSD Students Are Finalists in Zions Bank Video Contest

Three Canyons District students are in the running to win a $1,000 cash prize in Zions Bank’s “Financialize a Film” video contest, which promotes making good financial choices.
Videos by Mount Jordan students Heather Repp and Rachel Cowdell and Hillcrest student Aaron Hsu are posted on Facebook for a public vote. The films will compete with 13 other submissions from Utah middle and high school students. Finalists were chosen from a pool of nearly 70 entries.
The 60-second video by Repp and Cowdell, called “Why Should We Use Banks,” uses a purse thief to disprove one student’s theory that she should keep her money with her instead of depositing it at a bank. Hsu’s 60-second video shows an older brother introducing the concept of saving to a younger sibling after the two find a penny on the sidewalk. The name of the video is “Saving Every Penny.”
The makers of the film that receives the most votes will win the $1,000 cash prize, plus a $1,000 matching award for their school. Second- and third-place winners will receive $500 and $250, respectively, plus matching awards for their schools.
Voting is open through March 31. Winners will be announced the week of April 8.
