The Vermont Jump$tart Coalition is excited to announce the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners for our 2021 Financial Literacy video contest!

“Save for a Rainy Day” Video Contest

The video contest theme was “Save for a Rainy Day.” Participants could choose one or more of these topics to create a public service announcement that describes the importance of the topic.

  • Spending and Saving
  • Investing
  • Financial Decision Making

Judging was based on these criteria:

  • Clarity of message and structure, 40%
  • Production value, 30%
  • Creativity, 30%

We're incredibly proud of all the video submissions and judging them was not easy! We commend and applaud everyone for their videography skills, financial literacy knowledge, and efforts expended to create and share such wonderful messages.
