CUs on the Tube Alberta CUs host Agent4Change contest
CALGARY, Alberta (4/7/08)--Alberta’s credit unions are seeking a cause that would have a positive impact on youth in Alberta through its Agent4Change contest. Contest entrants submitted videos of their causes, which were uploaded to the campaign site at www.agent4change.ca. Voters will have until tomorrow to pick their favorite video from the top 10. The winner will be announced April 16. The credit unions will help make the proposed change a reality by awarding the winner an Apple laptop and $20,000 for consulting fees. Agent4Change drew 80 participants, age 18 to 24, who submitted videos about what they think needs changing in their communities. The contest also resulted in the creation of a Facebook community and websites devoted to individual candidates’ causes. “The contest was a great vehicle to listen to youth and what issues are of greatest concern to them,” said Liena Kano, assistant vice president of strategy and communications at Alberta Central CU. Albertans’ votes will make up half of the popular vote to determine a winner. The other half will come from panel judges representing credit union professionals, youth and experts in corporate social responsibility programs. To view the videos, use the link.
