Jeremy Kilpatrick, a student at Rogers-Herr Middle School in Durham, was the grand prize winner for his age group in the U.S. Treasury Department’s Save Out Loud contest.
The video he submitted for the contest showed off his drawings and explained that he would like to save money to attend art school one day.
As part of his prize, Jeremy, who was 11 at the time he made the 40-second video, was recognized by U.S. Treasurer Rosie Rios in December during a virtual video visit she made to his classroom. The class had the opportunity to ask Rios questions about the U.S. Treasury and how to save money.
