LOGAN – Utah State University student and Providence native Paige Rood was awarded $10,000 when national financial education initiative Save 10 announced its video contest winner today. The nationwide contest invited the contestants to create short videos that encourage people to start putting aside 10 percent of their money to retirement.
Before she was picked as the grand prize winner, Rood was one of the 10 finalists. Four of the finalists were from Utah, including three from Cache Valley. Rood was flown to Washington D.C. to accept the award Tuesday afternoon.
“When they called me it was kind of unreal,” she said. “This whole thing started as me entering a video into this contest for my economics class.”
