SAN JUAN – The Puerto Rico Bankers Association (PRBA) and the Federal Reserve Bank of New York (FRBNY) announced Friday this year’s winners of the the Financial Awareness Video Contest, now in its 7th edition, held at the Sila M. Calderón Foundation’s Center for Puerto Rico offices in Río Piedras.

A total of 99 students from 14 local higher education institutions took part in this year’s contest. With commercial credit as the main topic, the participating students developed a total of 29 videos of 30 seconds each.   

The winning video was “No abandones tus ideas” (Don’t abandon your ideas), created by Brandon Cruz González, Wensi Pierre Natera and Gabriel S. Rivera Vázquez of the University of Puerto Rico, Río Piedras campus.

The People’s Choice Award went to the video, “Manifiesta el Empresario que Hay en Ti” (Manifest the entrepreneur within you) created by the students Dayanne Meléndez Rosario, Nashmia M. Samrah Miranda and Raúl A. Samrah Miranda, of the University of Puerto Rico-Bayamón campus.

The call for the annual Financial Awareness Video Contest is made to college students between the ages of 17 and 33.

The initiative aimed at encouraging the creation of financial education videos from a fun and dynamic perspective has become very popular among the island’s college student community. 

This year’s participating and winning videos can be seen at the PRBA’s YouTube webpage.
