North Shore Bank Announces Winners of Video Contest

Community votes have determined winning school projects in honor of 95th anniversary


BROOKFIELD, Wis. – North Shore Bank today announced that it has selected the winners of its “Make Change Happen” video contest to help support school initiatives in the community. The contest is part of the bank’s 95th anniversary celebration and will award the four schools, each from a different region that the bank serves, with $1,923 each, matching the year the bank first opened its doors.

The following four projects have been reviewed by a panel of judges and chosen by the community as the winners:

North Region:

Central Region:

Central (MPS) Region:

  • Ronald Reagan High School in Milwaukee – “Reagan Stage and Production Crew” programs and production

South Region:

These four schools received the highest number of online votes from the community, which voted from a group of 12 finalists, three in each designated area.  Winners will be awarded the funding at private events and check presentations honoring the schools and their deserving programs.

“North Shore Bank was founded by a group of teachers in Shorewood, Wis., and as we honor our 95th anniversary, we wanted to continue to support education projects and benefit children in our local communities,” said Susan T. Doyle, North Shore Bank’s senior vice president of retail banking. “As a community-minded bank, we have a long relationship and history with schools, and we recognize the need to back efforts that benefit students and encourage lasting life skills for success. We want to thank everyone who entered the contest, voted for the finalists, and supported all of the deserving programs. We can’t wait to see the future success and growth of the four programs chosen.”
Entrants had to be school, classroom, academic, arts, athletics, technology and club initiatives that have a positive impact on public or private school students from 4k to 12th grade. To enter, students or teachers had to submit a video no longer than two minutes, explaining why their project deserves $1,923 to benefit children and how the funds will be spent. Video entries were considered for their creativity, enthusiasm, and passion in petitioning for the donated funds, as well as, the need and degree of merit it possesses for supporting local students.
