CEE announces the winner of the 2014 National Economic Challenge Video Contest

The winning entry of the 2014 National Economic Challenge Video Contest was created by a team of four students from Iolani High School in Honolulu, Hawaii. Dick Rankin, an Iolani Teacher, served as the team’s Coach.

CEE asked the eight finalist teams for the 2014 National Economic Challenge to prepare video profiles that show who they are as people, students and scholars. These videos were placed on our Facebook page and open to voting by the general public. The team from Iolani High School received the most votes with over 220 votes.

Each student on the team will receive a $25 iTunes gift card and the coach will receive a $100 Amazon gift certificate for use in the classroom. Congratulations to Iolani and to all the finalists for their great submissions!
