Congratulations to Kate Koontz, a recent WCHS graduate, on being named a national finalist in the Intellectual Property Owners Educational Foundation (IPOEF) Video Contest! Her video was inspired by her great-grandfather, who came up with some really cool inventions but never took time to patent them. Ironically, though his ideas didn't make him rich, a version of his story may still help his granddaughter Kate pay for college! Kate created her video as a part of Mrs. Hopper's Videography class at the Warsaw Area Career Center this spring, and now Kate's creative video just landed her one of the four national finalist spots chosen by IPOEF judges. With your help, she has a chance to win up to $9,500!
Please take a moment to vote for Kate in the 16-18-year-old category so she can win a $7,500 scholarship. She also has a chance to win another $2,000 if you like her video on Facebook. This can be regardless of or in addition to winning another category.
Voting ends August 31st. Remember to vote for Kate Koontz, and that patenting good ideas can help your descendants.
