The contest is hosted on Facebook. Not all schools allow access to Facebook, so please plan accordingly by uploading your video to Facebook via a computer not associated with your school.
One winner will be chosen by CEE Facebook fans (“Viewers’ Choice”) and one winner will be chosen by economists selected as judges by CEE (“Economists’ Choice”). Prizes include a $500 American Express gift card for each teacher winner, and $25 iTunes gift cards for the student(s) featured in the winning videos.
