Econ Ed Month Student Video Contest Winners 

POSTED: November 3, 2023 | BY: brendan


In celebration of Economic Education Month in October, we invited K-12 students nationwide to participate in an economics video contest. We asked students: “What economic advice would you give to your mayor?

We received more than 400 video submissions!

The responses we received were inspiring! These students care deeply about their communities. They discussed the environment, inflation, housing shortages, ways to support local businesses, and much more. These students tackled complex economic concepts thoughtfully and with creativity.

It is with great pleasure and excitement that we present the winners of the 2023 Student Video Contest!
