North Shore Bank is seeking entries for “Make Change Happen,” a 95th anniversary video contest to help support school initiatives in the local communities that the bank serves. Winning organizations will receive $1,923, matching the year the bank first opened its doors.
The contest will support four projects, one each for the bank’s north, south and central regions, and one specifically for Milwaukee Public Schools. Video entries are accepted until Nov. 2. Entrants can be school, classroom, academic, arts, athletics, technology and club initiatives that will have a positive impact on public or private school students from 4k to 12th grade.
Video entries are reviewed by a panel of judges and contest finalists are announced the week of Nov. 5. Then through Nov. 9, the public will have the opportunity to go online to vote for the organization they best think embodies “Make Change Happen.” Winners are announced the week of Nov. 12.
To enter, a video must be submitted that is no longer than two minutes in length. It needs to explain why the project deserves $1,923 to benefit children and how the funds will be spent. Video entries are considered for their creativity, enthusiasm, and passion in petitioning for the donated funds, as well as, the need and degree of merit it possesses for supporting local students.
