Students take Third Place in Savvy Credit Video Festival

A trio of Bloomfield College seniors took home one of the area’s top accolades on Feb. 5, as students Nadine Richardt, Erika Goudron and Andre Douglas won Third Place honors for their short film entitled, “Credit Oath” at the annual Savvy Credit Video Festival.

Sponsored by the New York Banking Association and the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, the contest was open to all college students from Tri-State-area schools (institutions located in either New York, New Jersey or Connecticut).  Designed to provide students with the opportunity to learn about the value of financial literacy and good credit through creative means, participants competing in the contest were asked to create and present 30-second videos on how to improve a person’s credit score. 

A group of 20 submissions were selected as finalists for the contest’s top prizes, with a four-week online voting period open to the public ending Feb. 3.  By placing third in the competition, the team earned a guided, private tour of New York Federal Reserve’s famed Gold Vault.

“I am very proud of my team and the work we have produced,” Goudron said of her team’s submission.  “It was not an easy task to try and take the time to accurately and skillfully convey a message with constraint while also being amidst the finals. One thing is for sure, I am very proud to represent Bloomfield College."

"The Savvy Credit Video Festival was a very important competition for me and the students at Bloomfield College,” Associate Professor of Finance and Faculty Advisor Anita Pasmantier said.  “Financial literacy is more important than ever for our young people to grasp.  This made the whole process both creative and fun, as well as an extremely important learning experience.  Not only did the students learn themselves about being financially savvy, but they were also charged with the mission to get the positive message across to others their same age."

One of three Bloomfield College submissions, “Credit Oath” was joined by “Double Trouble: Good Credit is the Way to Go” (created by seniors Katherine Medrano, Lawrence Rivers and Chrystopher Davis) and “Credit Class” (produced by senior Wildenson Francois, sophomore Aminata Souare and freshman Courtney Foreman) as the school’s submissions to reach the finals. 

“I am extremely proud of the effort Erika, Nadine & Andre put into making this video,” Pasmantier said. “The content was accurate, and the production was professional. Hopefully next year we will have other comparable submissions like 'Credit Oath'.  Kudos to all the Bloomfield College participants in this year's Savvy Credit Video Festival."
