Local Middle Schoolers Win Big Prize


By Joey Martin

Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) Three students over at O'Leary Middle School received a special honor this Friday.

And for their hard work… they were awarded a check for a $1,000.

The 3 students took part in a state wide video contest called "Financialize a Future".

The contest, sponsored by Zion's Bank, was open to all students ages 13 to 18.

This Friday an assembly was held and winners Katie Clark, Kelsi Cox and Anthony Carr were crowned the winners.

We were there and asked them what exactly their winning 60 second video was all about.

"Basically, what the contest was about was just helping kids see how to financialize for the future. A lot of times kids don't know how to spend their money wisely and so that was even the title of our video, "Spend your money wisely". And so the video was just about how to prepare for spending money as an adult."

Along with the 3–way split of a $1,000.

Zion's Bank also matched the funds and donated another $1,000 to O'Leary Middle School itself.
