Assist of a lifetime: Student gives basketball contest prize money to classmates

Allan Guei, a star student basketball player, won a foul-shooting contest and $40,000 in college scholarship money in a contest created to show students at Compton High School in LA how to create community spirit.

So what did Allan Guei do with his prize-winnings? He donated all of it to the seven other finalists.

Guei and Court Crandall, a partner at the Southern California advertising firm WDCW that sponsored the contest, join American Morning today to talk about Guei's decision and to explain why he chose to give the money away.
