SAN DIEGO, Calif., (March 28, 2014) -- San Diego County Credit Union® (SDCCU®), San Diego’s largest locally-owned financial institution, is teaming up with the San Diego County Office of Education to hold the Innovative Video in Education® (iVIE®) SDCCU Redeye Competition. The Competition will feature student/teacher teams tasked with creating an advertising commercial for SDCCU over a 36-hour period. The winning commercial will air on television and each member of the winning team will be awarded a $500 scholarship.
“We are proud to support the San Diego County Office of Education and their efforts to promote technology and innovation in the classroom.
