Neumann Senior Wins IBX Video Contest


Senior Kathleen Poliski, a Communication and Media Arts major and member of Neumann Media, has won the Grand Prize in the Independence Blue Cross (IBX) 90 Second Video Contest, designed to raise awareness among millennials about the need for health insurance. As Grand Prize winner, Poliski will receive $10,000 from IBX.


Her humorous 90-second video focused on the need for health care coverage in case of a spontaneous zombie attack.


The giant health insurance company launched the “IBX: 90 Seconds” competition to show that everyone can benefit from having health insurance — no matter their age or health status. The company asked for video submissions of up to 90 seconds in one of three categories:


  • My Independence Blue Cross Insurance Story

  • The Moment I Knew I Needed Health Insurance, and

  • A Parent’s Wisdom on the Importance of Health Insurance


The contest began on February 7 with a call for entries, which were posted and open to a popular vote on March 6. Winners were announced on March 24. In addition to Poliski’s $10,000 Grand Prize, Temple University won $10,000 as the school in the contest with the most student and alumni entry votes.
