SAN DIEGO (3/12/09)--Point Loma CU (PLCU) is sponsoring a YouTube video contest to help the next generation of moviemakers--or to least give younger members a chance to have fun--with its “PLCU in :30” video contest.
Teens and young adults can enter by creating a 30-second spot about PLCU’s checking account. The commercials, aimed at youth peers, should cover what makes PLCU checking the best, promote the convenience of PLCU’s 24-hour nationwide access services, and explain how to open an account. The winner will receive an iPhone and could have the winning ad played on a local cable TV station. Four runners-up will each win an iPod. The entry deadline is March 31. “YouTube is ubiquitous, so this contest is a great way to reach our younger members,” said Ted Dennis, PLCU president/CEO. “I’m looking forward to seeing the results of their creative vision; I expect we’ll discover some real talent.” PLCU has assets of more than $475 million.
