The Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond is hosting a movie premiere for its Share the Wealth: A Financial Literacy Video contest to present awards to the winning financial education videos. Undergraduate students from the University of Richmond, Virginia Commonwealth University, Virginia Union University and Virginia State University were challenged to create short 30-second videos on a financial literacy topic of their choice. Videos produced will be used to help educate young adults and college students on important personal finance issues.
The movie premiere and awards is open to the public and will be held at the Byrd Theatre at 2908 W. Cary St., in Richmond on Dec. 13, 2010, at 5:00 p.m.
Each team consists of three undergraduate students and a faculty advisor from their respective university. Winning videos will be featured on the Richmond Fed website and be used to inform and provide an innovative financial resource to the public.
