Santa Monica Student Named Winner Of 2014 IP Video Contest:

Natalie DiMundo, a Lincoln Middle School student, and Rosalynn Moe, her teacher have won the Intellectual Property Owners Education Foundation’s IP Video Contest. 

DiMundo created a great animated video about the importance of the patent system while Moe won the outstanding teacher’s prize for referring DiMundo to the contest. 

The pair will be honored at an awards dinner in Washington, D.C. in December.

The IP Video Contest challenged young adults to make a short video explaining the importance of the patent system. This year contestants were asked to focus their answers on how a patented invention has had an effect on their lives or the life of an inventor.

Two winners were selected from each of the 13-15 year old and 16-18 year old categories; one by public voting and one by the Foundation’s Board of Directors. Winners will each receive a $5,000 cash prize or scholarship.

Rosalynn Moe of Lincoln Middle School will receive a prize of $1,500 towards her classroom for having referred contest winner Natalie DiMundo.

“We were impressed with how thoughtfully this year’s winners were able to draw a connection between themselves, the IP system, and the economy as a whole. We congratulate them on this achievement,” said IPO Education Foundation President Louis Foreman.

Video Contest winners will be honored at the IPO Education Foundation’s Awards Dinner on Dec. 9, 2014 in Washington, DC. The IP Video Contest is one of several programs of Intellectual Property Owners Education Foundation, a non-profit subsidiary of Intellectual Property Owners Association (IPO), for educating the public on the importance of intellectual property rights.
