Paducah Bank Hosting Video Contest for Local High School Students

Paducah Bank is a company that truly believes in kindness, compassion, and community,” says Mardie Herndon, president of Paducah Bank. “In the short time that I have been in Paducah and in my new position as president of the bank, it has become quickly apparent that Paducah Bank is devoted to our constituents and the community in which we operate. And that is something we take great pride in. This video project that we are initiating is a visual testament to that belief.”

Paducah Bank is inviting area high school students, currently enrolled in grades 9 through 12, to produce a video that visually depicts the expression of kindness, compassion, and community. The video should be one minute long and can be submitted through the Paducah Bank Facebook page. The deadline for submission is January 15. The winning video producer will receive a prize of $500. The second place prize is $250, and the third place prize is $100.

“We want to not only inspire the young people in our community to think about these critical values in their daily lives, but to also give them an opportunity to be creative and to share their artistic talents with our community. We want to engage young people to think about how we, as individuals, families, friends, and corporate entities, can find ways to combine our unique energies and efforts for the cooperative good of our whole community,” Herndon adds.

Paducah Bank is an award-winning, locally-owned bank with banking locations in the city and county.

Paducah Bank is currently the top small business lender and the top mortgage lender in Paducah/McCracken County. Paducah Bank was named the Best Place to Work in Kentucky among medium-sized companies in 2006. In 2008, Paducah Bank was chosen by the Wall Street Journal as one of the nation’s Top 15 Small Workplaces.
