the steve stoffel memorial video scholarship
Credit Union of Ohio has offered a scholarship for over ten years. In 2008, we added a new twist by asking students to throw out the pen and paper in favor of a video camera. Last year, the scholarship was renamed "The Steve Stoffel Memorial Scholarship" in tribute of our friend, leader, and credit union champion. Always a proponent of financial literacy, Steve whole-heartedly embraced the credit union philosophy of "people helping people." He was a man of great character and integrity, and his leadership was a key contributor to the success of our organization today.
The video scholarship contest gives students a chance to have fun, be creative, and work with friends to examine how students handle their finances and to help the credit union educate students in the best way to do that. We look forward to the imaginative ways applicants will show how they handle (or should handle) their money, and how telling their story can have a positive impact on their friends and peers.
The scholarship competition has closed for 2012. Please check back with us in early January for details on next year's competition!
