Student Video Contest for #EconEdMonth

In celebration of Economic Education Month this October, CEE is inviting students nationwide to participate in our econ student video contest! This contest offers K-12 students the chance to think about the many cool and interesting ways economics is part of their lives and the city or town they live in, while showing off their economics smarts and creativity!  

Students are asked to answer “What economic advice would you give to your mayor?” Winners will receive cash prizes and be featured on our website and in social media. 

In 2022, our Econ Ed Month student video contest received over 700 entries. We’re so excited to see the advice students have to offer this year! Our economist judges will choose one winner in each of the following grade bands: K-4; 5-8; 9-12.  

This year, we are honored to have the following notable economists selecting the Economists’ Choice Winners: 

Raphael W. Bostic, President and CEO, Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta 

Falk Bräuning, Senior Economist and Policy Advisor, Federal Reserve Bank of Boston  

William C. Dudley, Ph.D, CEE Board Member and Senior Research Scholar, Princeton University 

Benjamin M. Friedman, Ph.D, CEE Board Member and William Joseph Maier Professor of Political Economy, Dept. of Economics, Harvard University 

Emily Kolinski Morris, Ph.D, CEE Board Member and Chief Economist, Ford Motor Company

Michelle Meyer, Chief Economist, U.S., Mastercard Economics Institute 

John J. Siegfried, Ph.D, CEE Board Member and Professor Emeritus, Vanderbilt University 

Thank you to these accomplished economists for dedicating their time to engaging with some potential economists-to-be! 

If you know a K-12 student who wants to show off their economic knowledge and win cash prizes, encourage them to enter! 

All entries are due: October 18, 2023, 11:59 PM ET. 

Happy #EconEdMonth!! 

About the Council for Economic Education

The Council for Economic Education’s (CEE’s) mission is to equip K–12 students with the tools and knowledge of personal finance and economics so that they can make better decisions for themselves, their families, and their communities, and learn to successfully navigate in our ever-changing economy. We carry out our mission in three ways.  We advocate to require financial and economic education in every state. We provide training, tools and resources – online and live through over 180 affiliates nationwide – to more than 40,000 teachers annually who in turn bring the highest quality economics and personal finance instruction to over 4 million students. We deepen knowledge and introduce high school students to critical career capabilities through our national competitions and Invest in Girls program.
