Dear Everyone,

Last night, the judges of the Federal Reserve Financial Awareness Video Contest awarded first prize to a team of 2 Media Studies and 1 Photography major for their PSA, "Repair Your Credit, Repair Your Life." Estela Melendez, Christian and Byron Guinanzaca were ceremoniously awarded a giant check for $2500, and their PSA will appear in multiplexes around the City. You can to view the giant check on temporary exhibit in the Media Lab, M121.

And that's not all! LaGuardia had more entries than any school, we had more videos make the final round (5 of the 15 finalists, out of 41 videos) than any school, we had the highest cumulative points from the judges of any school, judge Suze Orman enthusiastially praised our finalist videos and wants one of them for her CNBC show, and we had the best turn-out for the event of any school.

LaGuardia rules: 1st and 2nd prizes in 2010, 5 finalists in 2011, 1st prize for 2012!

Media Programs CLT, Tom Seymour, was tutor, booster, trouble shooter, and crisis manager for the 14 students who participated. Santo Trapani challenged his Business & Technology students to participate, and a group of them were rewarded with accolades from none other than Suze Orman.

Go to our website: www.lagcc.cuny.edu/mediatech and click on the Facebook icon to see Tom's photos from the event. Coverage of the event and an interview with our winning team will appear on CNBC today, and can also be viewed on the CNBC website.


Thanks to all of you who voted to get our videos into the finals.
